The Problems of Small States on the Example of the Baltic States in the Works of Russian Researchers

Abstract


The article provides an overview of national research on the problems of the Baltic states and the development of small states and their role in international relations. It revealed a deficit of political work on this topic. There are no comprehensive studies that would enable to carry out a deep analysis of the cause-effect relationship in elite activities. This creates the risk of closure of the study power groups in small states mainly in intra-factors. Author emphasized the prospect of deeper analytical study of the small states of the concept in relation to the Baltic states taking into account their active participation in political processes in post-Soviet space. The concept of a small states and the political elite, leading a small state, it is one of the potential growth points of theoretical knowledge with the latest trends in the development of the political realities in the national and international levels.
