In the future, Russia is expected to expand and share in the “new world gathering of lands.” Former aide to the President of Russia Vladislav Surkov wrote about this in the column for “Topical Comments”.
According to Surkov, now the world is enjoying its multipolarity, a parade of post-Soviet nationalisms and sovereignties, but later globalization and internationalization will return and “cover this twilight multipolarity.”
“And Russia will get its share in the new global collection of lands (or rather, spaces), confirming its status as one of the few globalizers, as it happened in the era of the Third Rome or the Third International,” the former presidential aide said.
Surkov also explained that Russia will develop not because it is good or bad, but “because it is physics.”
Earlier, Surkov compared President Vladimir Putin to the Emperor Octavian, because, in his opinion, just like the founder of the Roman Empire, he combined democracy with a monarchical archetype. He noted that the Russian leader has created a “new type of state.”
