The last 300 years the subject of opposition of Russia and Europe is

periodically staticized. If before contradictions between the leading

European actors were considered through a domination prism on the

continent, then in the 21st century the problem of effective development

and safety which can't be reliably provided without attraction to this

process of all significant political players comes out on top.

Historical opposition of Russia and Europe in new century began to gain

turbulent character which is characterized by lack of opredelennost and

regularities. Attempt of Russian political government during the initial

Post-Soviet stage to approach the West and to become his part I haven't

found support among leaders of the Western world who didn't see the

equal partner in Russia, ignoring her at the solution of questions of world

politics. Despite the taken steps on rapprochement, in general not an

udalost to overcome mistrust which began to increase in process of

rapprochement of the countries of the former Soviet Union with the

countries of NATO and the European Union.
