A dangerous situation is taking shape in international politics which is unfavorable for Russia: the intensive formation of greater Europe does not cover the post-Soviet area. The previous bipolar confrontation is being replaced by a new European bipolarity rather than a single-polar world dominated by the United States. The rationale behind the new European bipolarity is prompted, on the one hand, by the expansion of western institutions (such as NATO or EU/WEU) and the deepening of European integration, on the other, by the growing trend of excluding Russia from the future Europe. No matter whether Russia is a world or European power, its fundamental interests and strategic policy are interwoven with the development of the European integration center.
