Global Powers in the 21st Century

The MIT Press

This chapter reveals that some of Russia’s latest domestic and foreign policies have had an imperialistic flavor. Russia is forging strategic partnerships with China in different fields, with Iran as an observer instead of the United States. These developments demonstrate that its current policies have some imperialistic features similar to those of earlier regimes. The country is also making efforts to exert more control over its strategic neighbors. It is furthermore opposing the United States’ plan of re-instating democratic regimes in former Soviet Union states and the urge to grant complete autonomy to Kosovo. Russia’s new foreign policies are based on imperialistic principles and demonstrate its desire to have complete dominance in the region and in international affairs.

Keywords:   foreign policy, imperialistic flavor, United States, Kosovo, autonomy, imperialistic principles
