Continental Vision: Russia's Interests
Since the 19th century, geographers and other specialists have discussed the idea that Europe and Asia are not separate continents but actually joined together geographically to form a single continent of Eurasia. What are Russia’s interests in Eurasia? What influence does Russia possess, how can this be balanced with the other Eurasian powers and what are the limits?
Welcome to the first seminar of the Eurasia Seminar Series. What are Russia's visions of Eurasia?
