The Geopolitical Situation
The 11th of September 2001 affected the
political situation in the whole world so seriously that many factors in the
relationship between the countries of the former Soviet Union (FSU) and the
Middle East, (ME) including the sale of weapons and military technologies, might
change in the future. However, there are no signs that this might happen in the
near future, and whatever changes there are will probably not be radical.
The present article is based entirely on an analysis of the
long-term and objective interests of three countries of the FSU, Russia,
Ukraine, and Belarus, countries that manufacture and supply arms and
military-technical services to the ME.
In addition, the article will note certain aspects and
nuances of the policies of the three countries, above all, Russia, of course,
that might change in the course of the coming months.
