The author reviews the prospects of the maintenance and development of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The models of the CIS and the European Union integration are compared. The article covers the attempt to determine the level of the interrelation of economic (including energy) and political factors and their ability to influence the future of the post-Soviet integration. In the work, a special emphasis is made on the humanitarian component of cooperation with the CIS countries.
According to V. Petrovskiy, CIS needs the priority changes and the radical renovation of the mechanisms of its work. Otherwise it can go on existing in its current shape a bit longer, but gradually loses its influence in the post-Soviet space and sinks into political oblivion.
