The presentation of "North-South politological center" focused on development of Russia's scientific and media ties with the republics of South Caucasus was held in Moscow. Members of the expert community plan to interact with each other in order to provide recommendations to current governments of Armenia, Georgia and Azerbaijan. A special emphasis is laid on relationships with Baku - Kremlin's strategic partner, like Yerevan. Consolidation of the post-Soviet space is becoming a mandatory condition to stand against new challenges and risks in the region.

The Soviet Union collapsed twenty years ago but many republics don't want to cut a thin line that connects them with Russia in the face of economic and geopolitical problems in their territories. Russia's relations with many post-Soviet states have never been cloudless, though the credibility crisis was successfully overcome. Moscow's influence in Caucasus became particularly noticeable after the war in South Ossetia. The establishment of a customs union and a wave of color revolutions heralding open confrontation between the West and the Russian Federation extended Russia's influence over the rest of the post-Soviet space.

Just like Russian remains an international language in the post-Soviet space, nostalgia over bygone times gradually seizes those who failed to resist international pressure in its free floating. If Armenia, Belarus, Kirgizia and Ukraine strongly depend on the "big brother" despite declared independence, Azerbaijan is highly attractive for being an independent unit as well as a tool for reinforcing the conglomerate of former republics of the USSR. Even Baltic states start to realize that a pro-European stand is less advantageous than Moscow's patronage.
