This analytic report is prepared within the frames of the project “Situation in Central Asia after possible withdrawal of coalition troops from Afghanistan” of Russian Council for International Affairs (RCIA). Its target is to try to define the proper place of Central Asia in Russian external political priorities, to estimate possibilities and limitations from Russian side, and to plan measures for strengthening Russian positions in the region for a long perspective. RCIA and the authors of the report hope that presented material will become a new impulse for discussing these themes at the level of expert community, representatives of power and business, and can become the basis for working out the Concept of Russian Federation policy in Central Asia. The reports of this book reflect only personal views and research stands of the authors. They do not always correspond with the view-points of Non-commercial partnership – RCIA.
