The “Great Game” in the Caspian Region: the Kremlin’s Move (2004)

Autors: 
Shenin Sergey Yuryevich, Saratov State University
Abstract: 

The article is devoted to the study of the Russian-American relations in the Caspian region that were entitled “The Great Game”. Analyzing one of the stages of these relations (spring-autumn 2004) that was marked by the higher activity of the V. Putin’s Government, the author has come to the conclusion that “the Kremlin offensive” was stipulated by the presidential campaign in the USA, and the necessity to oppose the China’s penetration into Central Asia.
