Abstract. It is quite natural that Russian leadership pays priority attention to the conflicts in the post-Soviet space. The most vital concerns relate to securing stability directly in the Russian territory, in the neighboring states, as well as in the border regions. The author undertakes an analysis of the status of local conflicts in the post-Soviet area at the beginning of 2011, explores the background to new outbursts of violence in the region. The need to focus the efforts of Russia and its partners in the CIS and CSTO on enhancing the search for a peaceful solution to the discussed regional and internal conflicts is confirmed.
