New redistribution of the South Caucasus - Russia's modern dilemma




Russia, South Caucasus, politics

Official Moscow is effectively bringing them into its own “system orbit” in order to extend its influence “from leadership to dominance”. Historically, Russian empire tried by all means to bring the region of the South Caucasus under his influence, since the mentioned region, due to its unique geographical location, was of increasing importance to it. Thus, the South Caucasus factor carried a special burden for the Russian Imperial Court, and maintaining control over it was one of its top priorities.
