The struggle for influence zones in the post-Soviet space, the Ukrainian and Syrian crises, differences in approaches to global political processes, and the fight against international terrorism have led to a new confrontation between Russia and the West. Western and Russian analytical centers speak of a new Cold War comparing the present situation with a post-war long military, economic and ideological confrontation. Such comparisons have led to rather an interesting discourse, giving rise to the alreadycirculated “new Cold War” concept.
