The EU and US Policies towards the Post-Soviet Space: Similarities and Differences
The post-Soviet space represents one of the key directions of foreign policy of the western countries and integration associations which are interested in the extension of influence on these territories. As a result, the post-Soviet space increasingly becomes the intersection of interests of such international actors as the European Union and the USA. This study explores what policy these actors conduct towards the countries of the former Soviet Union. However, the post-Soviet region represents a range of different countries having little in common among themselves. Therefore, this brings up the question of the possibility of existence of American and European general foreign policy in regard to the post-Soviet states. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether there is the general policy of the USA and of the EU towards this region and to reveal the common and distinct features of their policies.
