    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. The disintegration of the Soviet Union in late 1991 left us a new world map with significant amount of problems to solve. The most important was the re-design of the international order. The disappearance of a world power was supposed to restore the balance of the global system to a new structure, placing power relations between states such as to allow the maintenance of international security. This new design of the world map affected the whole world, and in the short to medium term both the Western and the Asian powers had to reconsider their role in the world. But in the area that had been the Soviet Union, political and strategic engineering had to work harder, not only to draw new borders, but to define a new set of loyalties, cohesion and patronage in direct contrast with a system already established over the past centuries.
