Thursday,October 6, 2011, Moscow.- In the document, Putin described his ambitious project where Russia want to play a decisive role during the XXI Century in the creation of the new global geopolitics.
Putin´s project is the creation of the Common Economic Space of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan CES (starting next January 1st), to improve the Commonwealth of Independent States CIS, the future creation of the Eurasian Economic Union close with Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan and finally the Eurasian Union EAU.
According to Putin´s point of view, the future creation of the Eurasian Union EAU will effectively “bind” Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, “the EAU will be part of a Greater Europe, united by common values of freedom, democracy and the market laws.”
In his article, if any state want to become part of Europe, the best way is to first become part of the EAU, and that will allow each of its members more quickly and in a stronger position to integrate into Europe.
Vladimir Putin thinks that the way out of the crisis ,started in 2008, is to promote the interaction of the economic blocks in the world. Putin says that “building blocks” may get a more stable world economy.
In his document, the russian PM and presidential candidate Vladimir Putin explained his views about the eurasian Union with the following example: ” two of the largest union of our continent – the European Union and the emerging Eurasian Union – basing their interaction on the rules of free trade and compliance management systems, including through the relations with third countries and regional bodies, are able to extend these principles to the whole space – from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.”
