In the world has developed a completely new situation in 1991 as a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Since then, a strategic priority for US is to prevent the emergence of a new rival endangering them comparable to the threat posed by the Soviet Union during the period from 1945 to 1991. Twenty years after the collapse of the Soviet Union and defining the structuring element of the international relations was the strategy of the Obama administration, which is called “the turn toward Asia”, combining economic, financial, trade, military and diplomatic aspects. It can be viewed from two standpoints: first, the “official”, takes into account primarily the economic aspects of this strategy, which corresponds to absolute priority re-employment in the United States by new industrialization of the country, which was determined by the Obama administration. For a second, highly geopolitical point of view, the basis of this strategy are the relations between the US and China, this does not prevent the further reduction of the role of both: the European Union and Russia.
