GEOPOLITICAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT CORRIDORS

NUMBER of MAGAZINE: 25 (3) 2006.
The HEADING: GEOPOLITICS
AUTHORS: Vladimir Dergachev (Ukraine)
1. The international transport corridors (ITC) make up an extremely complex technological system that is to concentrate the general use transportations (railway, automobile, sea, pipeline) and telecommunications at the decisive directions.
2. The need to create conditions to expand the European market has been laid at the base of the strategy of transport corridors development. The unified Europe can be built based on the competitive economy with the modern transport-communication infrastructure. The ITC European project is to solve, basically, the classical transport problem.
3. Russia has two unique advantages that are of essence in the industrial epoch - the world most lengthy space and mineral resources. The usage of the geographical space (11.5 percent of the Earth area) as a communication resource, though, has not left a stage of declarations yet. Moreover, recently, there came up the temptation to consider that to revive the grandeur of a power state just the gas mains would be enough.
4. The transcontinental transport corridors that pass through Russia's territory would be economically effective if they met the requirements of the classical transport problem. From the geopolitical positions, this is in the interests of the EU USA and APR as well. If Russia's advantage went to just one axis in the communication triangle, the project would be blocked by other world players.
5. Russia's future would be determined by the possibility to organize and develop of the Euro-Asian area. There is a need to revive - in quality new shape - the Euro-Asian economic program of the Russian Empire that gave a special role to constructing the bridge of trade between the West and the East. From time to time, Russia of there days proclaim its intentions to use or reuse the great trading ways, but due to the loss of the geopolitical power, lack of capital and political will the pronounced projects result in mere empty words.
6. The geopolitical situation in the Balkans, Middle East, Caucasus, and the Central Asia has an important role to play in solving the problem under consideration. Instead of building the communication bridge to accelerate the trading, financial and industrial capital turnover at the boundaries of civilizations, we are witnessing ethnically oriented delimitation there, in which the USA take an active part, that is fraught with unpredictable consequences.

TECHNOLOGIES TRANSFORMATION IN THE NEWEST GEOPOLITICS

NUMBER of MAGAZINE: 27 (1) 2007.
The HEADING: GEOPOLITICS
AUTHORS: Vladimir Dergachev (Ukraine)
1.Russia is inevitably coming towards another milestone in its history, with certain public anxiety over the country's future. The parliamentary and presidential elections have seemed to become a common occurrence, after so many years of democratic development. Yet, perhaps, it is not true for the Euro-Asian Russia, where the role of a personality in power is still great, and one might speak of relative stability when there is none willing to experience another distemper. It is particularly dangerous when tactical problems of struggle for power dominate over the necessity of strategic vision, when there is possibility of disintegration of the federative state.
2.The newest geopolitics is overcoming the narrowness of traditional and new geopolitics with their over-powerful geographical or economic determinism. It makes the stress on the many-dimensional space allowing for variety of cultural and genetic codes. It is based, therefore, on capturing territories by means of the technology of manipulating the consciousness (subconsciousness) of citizens of the state chosen to be the object of impact.
3.A state's geopolitical power springs up, primarily, out of strength of mind, rather than of material resources. It is not by chance, the American administration watch the state of the world 'spiritual climate' that closely. The greater role of the American clergymen in the Eastern Europe is noted in the US State Department's annual report on freedom of religion in the countries around the world, prepared in September 2006.
4.Based on the knowledge of human nature, the newest geopolitics technologies are being effectively used against the post-Soviet government elites in the Eastern Europe, which had found inconceivable freedom of action and decided to be seen as the most business-like, wise, downy and holy. The major subjects for an 'attack' are not the industrial and other strategic establishments, but that potion of the government elite that lade with megalomania and inferiority complex.
5. In Russia, the 'orange revolution', in its pure form, is not foreseeable, neither a "democratic" protege of the West has any chance to win the absolute victory. But it is quite possible to have some party 'governed by love' victorious, capable to destabilize situation in the country and to weaken the Russian statehood. As far as Russia concerns, in the nearest future, the newest geopolitics technologies transformation will be redirected from compromising democratic slogans to usage of patriotic ideology of nationalism that counts on the national identity of the physical persons who strive for power, thus making the corruption more resourceful and absolutely invincible.

THE "ANACONDA NOOSE" OF DEMOCRACY: NEW BOUNDARIES OF THE EURASIAN GEOPOLITICS

NUMBER of MAGAZINE: 29 (3) 2007.
The HEADING: IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBALIZATION
AUTHORS: Vladimir Dergachev (Ukraine)
1.From the viewpoint of the newest geopolitics, more complex many-dimensional communication landscape is being formed. It becomes obvious to many, that Russia did not and will not grow to be a part of the West's wealthy "belly". The Russian Federation, adequately contributed to the destruction of the Soviet Union, has suddenly decided to aspire to the role of a new Heartland being identified with Russia. That made the USA to correct its Eurasian geopolitics giving the first priority to the Eurasian marginal zone of civilizations (Evramar).
2.Russia wins tactical victories using the technologies of the new (energy) geopolitics. But it loses, following the already set traditions, in strategy, whenever the newest geopolitics info-psychological technologies of undermining strength of mind are used against it. At that, Russia plays the role of the self-justifying party more often, shows weakness, filling the information space with idle talk, instead of genuine political will. 
3.Evramar's geopolitical future is seen as the need to preserve poly-ethnicality along the boundaries of civilizations by expanding contact/transit communication functions and creating modern infrastructure. To set up communication centers mode of operation with preferential mode of operation at the boundaries of the Eurasian civilizations is to promote economic growth, socio-psychological comfort and inter-ethnic tolerance in the Balkans, Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia.
4.The USA and the European Union cannot overcome their own eroticism for the sake of this future. Russia and China ought to be interested in it. But the Communist China has no wish to enter any kind of alliance against the third country. Thus, the Eurasian world becomes more unstable and unpredictable, than it was prior to the world Socialist system disintegration.

CRISIS OF THE UKRAINIAN STATEHOOD

NUMBER of MAGAZINE: 30 (4) 2007.
The HEADING: CIS
AUTHORS: Dergachev Vladimir (Ukraine)
1. Ukraine has brought a weighty contribution to split the Eastern European geopolitical space, having played the role of the West's 'fifth column'. In Ukraine, the anti-Russian geopolitical technologies meant to destruct the Eastern Europe's multi-dimensional communication space are successfully used. The strategic object of breaking finally apart the Orthodox civilization has been substantially secured in the religion space. In the military-political space, the strategic object is barring the military alliance with Russia, it is successfully implementing by the Ukrainian pro-American president-nationalist.
2. The sources of the Ukrainian statehood crisis are obvious. The civilization break that crosses through Ukraine's territory, makes it impossible to consolidate the society upon one cultural and historical tradition - either West-European, or pro-Russian. There is no political movement capable to consolidate the Ukrainian society and to start meaningful dialogue between the parts of the country. Attempts to combine incompatible - to build the national state based on the principles of the Ukrainian fundamentalism (pan-ukrainianism) and to be integrated into Europe, where the priority is given to political nation protecting the rights of concrete person, have brought about the deep crisis of the Ukrainian statehood and might result in complete 'Balcanization' of Ukraine.
3. The Ukrainian statehood crisis might have been avoided, if independent government relied on the country's citizens, rather than on the outside power centers in the Kremlin, White House, or Brussels. The following scenarios are foreseeable. The nationalists 'capture' the territory of Ukraine by means of changing the Fundamental Law, or the president preserves his powers to appoint local heads of administrations. In that case it would be possible to follow the policy of joining NATO using the administrative resource. The second scenario could be based on collusion between the nationalists and the regionalists, who would head coalition government in exchange for guarantees of the support of the second-term presidency by the electorate in eastern and southern regions of the country.

THE CHINESE GEOPOLICY SPECIFICS

NUMBER of MAGAZINE: 32 (2) 2008.
The HEADING: GEOPOLITICS
AUTHORS: Dergachev Vladimir (Ukraine)
1. With Chinas being real candidate for a superpower, Peking is not seeking membership in the world prestigious G8 club, where the additional seat is occupied by the economically weak Russia. The traditional conceptions of the Heavenly Empire being the center of the world are not allowed to go down to the level of barbarians from the surrounding environment, and when the Chinas geopolitical power becomes undisputable, everything will be settled by itself.
2. In Eurasia, the Chinas Way-and-Wall geopolitics, unlikely that of the USA, stakes not on ethno-nationalism or puppet democracy, but rather on consolidating model based on economic growth that provides for keeping poly-ethnicality at the civilization frontiers. China has become the only power in the world capable to adequately retaliate the newest geopolitics information technologies used by the US special services against Peking. After the American unsuccessful aggression in the Middle East, Washington is following the course of barring the direct confrontation with Peking, having added to its arsenal the Chinese experience of peaceful expansion.
3. Today, both Chinese and American economies are so much inter-vulnerable, that the situation serves as a guarantee of Cold Peace between the superpowers. That cannot be said of the American-Russian business relations. Even as early as in the second half of the 1990s the USA was quite sure Russia would become its raw material appendage, nowadays all such illusions evaporated, but the desire to completely smash the former superpower has become more acute, with no dependence on personal character of just another presidential candidate. So, there is no guarantee the US will put aside the confrontation model in the Eastern Europe (Ukraine and Georgia entering NATO). Eventually, the USA would find itself facing the reintegration of the last of the Eurasian three geopolitical poles along their own scenario.
