As is known, on February 20, 2016 the United Nations Security Council did not accept the Russian proposal for a resolution on the need to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Syria. Against it voted six of its fifteen members, including three (out of five) having veto power: these are the United States, Britain, France, Ukraine, New Zealand and Spain. That is, it turns out that these six countries openly oppose the protection of the territorial integrity of another country which, like themselves, is a full member of the UN.
The latest developments in post-Soviet space indicate serious omissions in American policy, addressing the establishment of US-loyal regimes in the ex-Soviet republics. In actual fact, the “colour revolutions” in Georgia, the Ukraine and Kyrgyzstan additionally complicated both the situation in these countries and their problems, caused by the serious economic crisis.
It is a well-known fact that in the course of two centuries Russia has been putting a lot of effort in enforcing its positions in the Black Sea and Caucasus regions and in Central Asia.
