Cite item


The article investigates the main geopolitical approaches of the Western researchers to the Ukraine. The author draws attention to their contradictory assessments of the Ukraine. On the one hand, the Western analysts attach great significance to this state due to its unique location. On the other hand, such location is regarded as insecurity and a kind of hindrance for being any important political actor. The Western geopolitics consider Ukraine not as an independent geopolitical unit with its own foreign policy interests, but only as an object for increasing pressure on Russia.
