Abstract
The history of integration projects in the post-Soviet space has been difficult and controversial. The future success of these projects is not guaranteed. At the same time it is clear that projects with the participation of Russia (CSTO and EAEU) play a far more important role in the post-Soviet space than projects championed by the “collective West” (GUAM, Eastern partnership, etc.).

In the context of a protracted confrontation with the “collective West” an idea of a geographical expansion of Eurasian integration projects and formation of a “Great Eurasia” becomes crucial for Russia. The author comes to the conclusion that prospects of development of the post-Soviet countries will be determined by their choice between the “collective West” with delegation to it part of their sov-ereignty or global integration projects which are suggested by Russia, India and China.
