Abstract. At present, despite the economic weakness and rather high level of domestic political conflict in Kyrgyzstan, its importance as an object of foreign policy of the world’s leading players is growing. Sanctions pressure from the West may slow down the development of trade cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic, but this will not be critical for the development of relations between the two countries because of their diversity. The growing influence of China and Turkey leads to increased competition between the leading partners of Kyrgyzstan, which allows the republic to derive significant benefits. At the same time, pressure from the West is forcing Bishkek to deviate from the “multi-vector” principle, giving priority to the development of relations with China and, within the framework of existing realities, with Russia. To strengthen the geopolitical role of Kyrgyzstan, it is of fundamental importance to delimit its borders with its Central Asian neighbors.

Keywords: Kyrgyzstan, cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Kyrgyz Republic, S.Zhaparov’s visit to China, Turkish-Kyrgyz cooperation, Tajik-Kyrgyz border conflict, delimitation of the Uzbek-Kyrgyz border
