Eurasia und Kofner

Ja, was jetzt, lieber Yuri, ist Eurasianismus wichtig oder nicht?

First of all, most Western analysts overestimate the influence that Eurasianism allegedly has on Russian president Vladimir Putin, on Moscow’s foreign policy and on its involvement behind the EAEU. Secondly, both intentionally and unintentionally Eurasianism has often received negative reviews by Western scholars and reporters, who draw similarities with European right-wing ideologies such as Italian fascism. Thirdly, this distorted view fits perfectly into the construed narrative of “a neo-imperialist Russian hegemon that coerces its neighbors and collaborates with European populist nationalists in order to build its own post-Soviet empire and undermine Western liberal order”.

Together, these arguments have become part of the overall agenda to discredit the Eurasian Economic Union as a liberal integration project and to dissuade European leaders from contemplating cooperation with it in form of a common economic space “from Lisbon to Vladivostok”.

schreibt Kofner bei Ralf Ostners Global Review. Ralf Ostner ist auch Kollege beim RIAC.

Also gut zusammengefasst, was EAEU und die anderen eurasischen Konzepte sind.

Eurasianismus kann es nicht sein, denn der ist nur eine Zuschreibung durch den Westen, um Russland schlecht aussehen zu lassen.

Trotzdem promotet man Eurasien mit einem Themenzug „ЕАЭС“ in der Moskauer Metro zur Feier des 5jährigen Jubiläums der Eurasischen Wirtschaftsunion EAEU/ EEU.
