The article analyses the dynamics of the Russian-Kazakh relations during the post-Soviet period. S.Golunov notes the considerable growth of the majority of indexes reflecting the economic cooperation between the two states as compared to 1990s and at the same time shows that today’s high level of bilateral relations is based on shaky ground. According to the author, the future of the Russian-Kazakh relations depends on concerted efforts to promote economic and humanitarian bonds and overcome borderline, administrative, psychological and other barriers. The author believes that without intensifying such bonds these relations will continue to depend on fuel prices and short-term political interests of the ruling elites.
