The role of the Cossacks in the Formation of the Eurasian Space

Modern integration processes in the Eurasian space bring forward the problem of development of these territories and the formation of their geo-political integrity. In these processes, people were doomed to resist the forces of nature. The difficult conditions required bold and hardened people, capable to survive there. Such people were the Cossacks. In addition to the most important skills of the Cossacks, this type of passionarity was distinguished; it carried a powerful charge of patriotic, state-orientated culture.
Keywords: Eurasia, geopolitics, Cossacks, passionarity, colonization.

The role of the family in the education of the Cossack-patriot

The article highlights the important cultural differences of family education in the Cossack families. Structure-forming units of the Cossack families were related to responsibilities and reciprocal obligations for the preservation of individual liberty.
The author argues that cossack family evolution was greatly influenced by the dominant role of the community and father’s patriarchal rule, while at the same time the mother’s role has significantly been increasing. Mothers in Cossack families not only perform the functions of a housewife, but also they are faithful companions of their husbands. Care and education in the Cossack families become important elements of socialization.
The author concludes that the education system of a Cossack patriot is based on the inviolability of the traditional foundations of the Cossack community and service to the state, allegiance to the country. The combination of personal freedom and public responsibility emphasize a special character of the Cossack pedagogical system.
Keywords: Cossacks, culture, education, ethnos, history, nation, pedagogy, traditions, training.

The Problems and Perspectives of Tourism Development in the South of Russia: the Crimea and the Krasnodar region

The article deals with the fact of reallocation of touristic flow associated with the changes in geo-economical and geopolitical situation. The authors state that right from the beginning of the economic sanctions regime, western countries have been deterring the desire of Russian tourists to take holidays abroad. Besides, the attraction of Russian resorts is artificially enhanced by the growth of rates of foreign currencies against the Russian rouble, which reduces significantly the purchasing power of the Russian citizens in relation to the proposed foreign travel products. Thus, the inclusion of the Republic of Crimea into the Russian Federation fully transformed the market of touristic services of the Krasnodar Krai.
The authors conclude that the expected inflow of tourists did not happen due to the problems of transport infrastructure (the absence of a bridge across the Kerch Strait and the low availability of the ferry line). At the moment the situation is worsened by the unstable situation in the Crimea on the border territory with Ukraine and the energy blockade of Crimea.
Keywords: tourism, tourist-recreational complex, Krasnodar Krai, Republic of Crimea.

Agglomerations and Cross-Border Cooperation: a case study of Donbass region

Modern globalization processes encourage the feedback reaction in form of the so-called glocalization, search and creation of the forms of cross-border cooperation on the regional level.
The author states that one of such glocalization examples is agglomerations in the frontier zones. They encourage the formation of new economic centres, but on the other hand, they are aimed at integration with the frontier actors. The article deals with the questions of development of Rostov`s metropolitan area (agglomeration) within the region of Donbass.
Keywords: agglomeration, frontier zone, Donbass, euroregion, Rostov-on-Don, integration, Donetsk, Lugansk.

New European Strategy for Global Security

This paper presents an analysis of the EU activities in the sphere of international security as a global strategic actor. The European Union is developing a new global strategy to conduct its foreign policy in a world that is becoming “more and more interconnected, complex and contentious”. Thus, the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini will have to submit by June 2016 a global strategy of the EU Common Security and Defence Policy.
The global role of the EU in a constantly and rapidly changing international environment must be due to a comprehensive strategy, with clearly defined priorities. The EU must take into account all the challenges and opportunities that may result from changes in the situation in the world.
The new European security strategy already has a counterpart - EU Security Strategy of 2003, prepared by Javier Solana, the chief of which was urge “secure Europe in a better world”. In addition, the new document aims to create a strategy for addressing the global challenges that changed the strategic situation in the EU since 2003. The adoption of the European Security Strategy (ECC) of the European Council in December 2003 was the first attempt of the European Union to create a global strategic document.
Keywords: EU, European Security Strategy, the Global Security Strategy.
