In this series, I intend to give historic analysis of political, social and economic system of modern Russia. I consider this series of articles as a kind of Heartland of my previous series and as foundation to revelation of reasons and possible outcome of the confrontation between Russia and the West, including in Ukraine, Caucasus and Central Asia.
It is impossible to uncover and analyze the causes of this confrontation without understanding what state and what system Vladimir Putin has created and continues to build. Where is he leading Russia and other former Soviet states, including Ukraine and the Central Asian states that are inseparably connected to Moscow. Without understanding of hidden and visible features of the state system of Russia and the Russian civilization, it is impossible to foresee future development of the relations between the West and Moscow.
