Description of the Online Subject: Economic Area of Orthodox Civilisation.

Between 200 and 300 million people in the World is Orthodox, the second Christian family after Catholicism and before Protestantism.

Russia is undoubtedly the Central State of Orthodox Civilisation; Russia is also a BRICS country (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.

Since 1741 to 1917, the Russia's colonial empire it stretched from the Baltic Sea to Alaska, from Poland to part of Turkey controlling majority of Orthodox Civilisation and Central Asia. Russia, as head of Orthodox Civilisation, dominated vast areas of Christian and Islamic Civilisation and even a Buddhist country like Mongolia.

After the revolution of 1917, it was created in 1922 the Soviet Union formed by Russia, the Soviet Federal Socialist Republic of Transcaucasia, the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, and Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic, later the Republics of Central Asia, Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan were added. After completion of the Second World War, the USSR also would control Poland, East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, the Balkans, and the Baltic Republics leading to the beginning of the Cold War.

The collapse of the USSR in 1991 would lead to the independence of these countries. Since then, Russia tries to maintain the leadership in the region. However, in recent years Russia has had military clashes with Georgia or Ukraine. In addition, we must take into account the “great game of petrol and gas” that develops in Central Eurasia.

Nowadays not a large economic integration project integrates all the countries of Orthodox Civilisation although several Free Trade Agreements between these countries have been established. Perhaps in the next decades, we will observe the emergence of a massive integration project of  Orthodox Economies.

Russia and Orthodox Countries are focusing their international economic relations mainly on two areas:

  1. Europe, in particular with the European Union
  2. Central Asian Republics

Surely, Orthodox Civilisation is one of the civilisations less integrated with other civilisations.
