Russia is defined by the Pacific Power

Russia is defined by the Pacific Power

Vladislav Shulaev, Co-Chairman of the RASO Committee for Branding and Promotion of Territories, Director for Promotion of the Territories of the AGT Communications Agency:

Russia Is defined Pacific power. This, however, does not negate the fact that it remains, for example, an Arctic power. And yet this name will require additional "Pacificization" of the country. Thus, the status of a Pacific state obliges to further strengthen its presence in the economic and cultural life of the Asia-Pacific region, in the communication sphere and in the field of education.

The Pacific accent will probably force the term "Far Eastern" into the past, as it contradicts the new geo-economic and geopolitical priorities. 

Hopefully, the outdated, somewhat absurd geographical names of parts of the country will finally begin to be replaced. After all, it is obvious that the real Central, or Middle Russia, is the Siberian Federal District. What lies to the west is European Russia, and on the other side is Eastern. And if we really remember about Far Eastern Russia, then our past Alaska and Fort Ross in California deserve this title.

For the symbolic consolidation of the country's presence in the Asia-Pacific region, it is desirable to have a regular, almost ritual event - a forum, a macroregion-scale event or, for example, a joyful meeting of the New Year arriving from the Pacific Ocean in the ice-free and soon free port of Vladivostok.

In addition, the Pacific theme urgently requires rehabilitating the exact and complete version of MV Lomonosov's quote, mistakenly closed to Siberia (supposedly "The Wealth of Russia will grow in Siberia"). In fact, Mikhail Vasilyevich wrote in 1763 in his work "A Brief Description of Different Travels in the Northern Seas and an indication of the possible passage of the Siberian Ocean to Eastern India": "The Russian power will grow to Siberia and the North Ocean and reach the main European settlements in Asia And in America. " So the outstanding scientist spoke, and his thesis is now especially consonant with the arctic and Pacific geo-economic vector of Russia's development.
