BRICS Summit: A Blessing in Disguise

... for collaboration (and the BRICS president’s rating has recently dropped to junk, thus prompting the idea of the organization establishing a rating agency of its own), it is still only a background. Probably, given the considerable contradictions in IndiaChina relations, India is indeed the relatively “weak” link in BRICS. This applies not only to unresolved territorial disputes, but also to its strategic resistance to Beijing’s Belt and Road initiative, as well as other issues. Of course, the United ...


South Asian Gas Market: It’s Time to Mount an Offensive

... Iran to a situation of uncertainty, making it hope for India and Pakistan to make a stand. The United States is evidently putting a great deal pressure on these two countries. However, on the one hand, Washington is extremely interested in involving India in an anti-China coalition, so it has to take New Delhi’s position into account and be careful not to go too far. On the other hand, Pakistan, which has long been a loyal ally of the United States, has been drifting towards China over the past decade and may expect ...

China and the US in Asia: Four Scenarios for the Future

... major military political crisis in Beijing-Washington relations is avoided; territorial and border conflicts gradually become less of an issue; the logic of economic interdependence wins over that of the geopolitical balance of power. The “reset” in China-India relations gains particular significance, comparable in its consequences to the “reset” in Russia-China relations in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. China, on the rise and confident in its power, agrees to significant concessions to India ...


Indo-Pacific or Community of Common Destiny?

... may be, the general thrust of Washington’s strategic design of the new Eurasia within the context of the Indo-Pacific is aimed squarely at the military and political containment of Beijing in one form or another. Community of Common Destiny, Russia, India, China, and the Consolidation of Eurasia An alternative strategy for the alignment of a new Eurasia involves consolidating the continent from within and not without, not from the periphery towards the centre, but from the centre towards the periphery....


Does Coal Have a Future?

... However, experts believe that country’s consumption has already reached a plateau and will remain stable until about the mid-2020s, after which the inevitable decline will follow. This means that, with the gradual reduction of coal use in the West and China, India will become the most promising market. The International Energy Agency predicts that India will see its coal consumption grow by 135 million tonnes annually by 2022, more than the rest of Asia and Africa combined.

SCO: The Cornerstone Rejected by the Builders of a New Eurasia?

... facing institutional competition, albeit in an implicit and relatively mild form. We have already mentioned the SCO’s rivalry with the EAEU, but this is not the only possible scenario. For example, the BRICS organization (which includes Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) is based on the Eurasian triangle of Russia, India and China (the “RIC” part of the acronym). Now that India is a member of the SCO, the latter has come to reproduce, somewhat belatedly, the Eurasian triangle of BRICS; this ...


Reflecting on Greater Eurasia and Its Role in the World

... its regional status being shifted to the global structure level. Any potential tensions within the Organization among individual members were informally stabilized by the Russian-Chinese ‘axis’ both before and after the SCO expansion.

Prospects of Military Space Industry

..., Venus, Mercury, the gas giants, and even the Sun itself. In near space, Russia resumed the deployment of its GLONASS navigation system that had been suspended in 1995. Other countries came up with similar indigenous systems: Galileo (ESA), BeiDou (China), Quasi-Zenith (Japan), and IRNSS (India). The rivalry was piggybacked by a race of military programs, from the Bush administration’s idea to set up a space-based ABM echelon to the U.S. and Chinese tests of anti-satellite munitions. By the early 2010s, everything had changed. On June ...
