... conjunction of the Eurasian Union with the Silk Road Economic Belt, the land-based part of the BRI. Building on this, in May 2018 both parties signed a trade and economic cooperation agreement.

One More Time on Greater Europe and Greater Eurasia

... beliefs into question. Why Russia’s tilt towards Asia will continue It might sound counterintuitive, but the only plausible way for Russia to get back to Europe today goes through Asia.
