Aleksandr Dugin is a Russian geopolitician and a representative of the classical geopolicy school. According to this school, the fate of states is determined by their geographical determinism. It also says that contraposition of continental and marine powers, coinciding with the confrontation between the East and the West, is predetermined.
To this end they try to attract geopolitical strategies and ideologies: in the West first of all in the United States this is Atlantism, and in the East first of all in Russia neo-Eurasianism and A. Dugin is one of pioneers of neo-Eurasianism. The main thesis of the neo-Eurasianism is that the struggle between Russia and the United States is inevitable, since the United States is the engine of globalization seeking to destroy Russia, the fortress of spirituality and tradition.
According to A. Dugin, Russia alone cannot resist the dictatorship of the United States; therefore it needs a multi-polar world and the allies. In the world of Islam, Iran could become one of the main allies of Russia, since Iran retained its firm spiritual religious background.
Dugin, Japan could be the ideal geopolitical partner for Russia, however, Japan has become part of the Atlantic world and lost its spiritual strength. The ultimate goal of A. Dugin looks as follows: the United States should be repressed and free of any chance to claim for the global domination. It is quite difficult to say if the current Russian authorities have been coherently observing and implementing the geopolitical strategy-ideology proposed by A. There are some hints that A. Dugin is loyal to V.
Surkov who is considered one of the key ideologists of the Kremlin. According to S. Dugin lays substantial weight on the relationship with Germany. Dugin himself denies his relations with the Kremlin and his statements on actions of the Russian authorities are quite controversial. For instance, at the beginning the geopolitician was quite skeptical towards D.
Medvedev as the Russian president, but later he changed his mind and watched with pleasure D. Medvedev throwing down the glove to the uni-polar world after having declared his five foreign policy goals and rebuffed the Georgian actions in the South Ossetia. Today A. Dugin might have certain ideological influence on the Kremlin when it is beneficial for the Kremlin and sometimes gets financing for organization of various campaigns.
This could be the reason of the especially tense current relationship between Russia and the United States. Secondly, in order to gain over Europe, Russia should act via France and Germany.
Schroeder and J. Chirac they are good nowadays as well. Thirdly, according to A. Dugin, Russia shall have a reliable ally in the Islam world and Iran could become one of the allies. Today Moscow plays around with Tehran and actually prevents the West from taking more strict sanctions against Tehran. Fourthly, A. Dugin suggests acting in the East according to the situation. Today it is more useful for Russia to cooperate rather than confront with China, and the future would determine relevant actions.
Most importantly: for A. Dugin consolidation of influence in the post-soviet space is the ultimate goal of Russia if it wants to restore the empire. Dugin himself criticizes V. Putin and D. Medvedev for their insufficient firmness rather than for the principle issues. Copyright: it is obligatory to indicate www.

Aleksandr Dugin's Foundations of Geopolitics
The totalitarian drift suffered by the United States during the mandate of George W. Bush caused that in the name of the holy-holy security of the State, in practice, the principle of inviolability habeas corpus of people was annulled, de facto establishing the principle of " A major military conflict is brewing at the heart of Asia. It could come to nothing, or it could affect four countries. It all depends on how valid the actions of those involved are going to be and whether other countries are going to undertake peacekeeping efforts.

Euras[ianism] brings an ideological foundation for post-Soviet imperialism.
