This study is aimed at analyzing the direct impact of logistics projects, directly land, air and sea, on the conduct of the foreign policy of the Russian Federation among the countries of the Eurasian space. An attempt will be made to identify the role of infrastructure in the foreign policy apparatus of the Russian Federation. With the growing market of the Eurasian region and the emergence of a Chinese partner, the infrastructure is called upon to become the primary means of conducting both foreign policy and the soil for the development of economies of all countries of the region. In this regard, it is vital to give a direct assessment of how realistic it is to implement and use all kinds of projects aimed at developing all of logistics corridors within the framework of Russia's foreign and domestic policy, as well as suggest the benefits and potential leverage of Russia in the framework of the Eurasian partnership. Numerous railway projects, such as, for example, the Chinese New Silk Road, or the Russian Trans-Siberian Program, are laid down in ten-year development plans for both direct beneficiary states of the Chinese People's Republic and Russian Federation, as well as adjacent to the projects interested states. The relationship between the shift towards multipolarity and the development of infrastructure will also be studied, since the fall of the western hegemon is an integral part of the new agenda, and a look from the logistic side will allow better tracking the facts of the shift of the former polarity to the new world order.
