Russia and the global ethnic crisis

An integral part of the global ethnic crisis is national conflicts on post-Soviet territory. It's not international conflicts in the traditional sense of the term, because that is not in the international sphere, and within the framework of a single State.

Essentially unresolved were questions of protection of the national identity of minority peoples and nationalities, with no or living outside the borders of their nacional?noterritorial?nyh entities.
Aggravated and Sovietization on the territory of the Russian Federation. However, from the point of view of the national interest of Russia, its territorial integrity and the importance of national defense and border conflicts (Tajikistan, Nagorno-Karabakh, Georgia, etc.).
