The process of "gathering the Empire" should initially focus on the distant goal, which is Russia's access to the warm seas. It was thanks to the containment of Russian expansion in the southern, southwestern, and northwestern directions that Atlantic Atlantis managed to maintain its control over all the “coastal spaces” surrounding Eurasia. Russia was geopolitically a “complete” power in the East and North, where its political borders coincided with the natural geographical borders of the Eurasian continent. But the paradox was that these coasts are adjacent to the cold seas, which is an insurmountable barrier to the development of navigation to the extent that it would seriously compete in the seas with the fleets of the Western Island (England, and later America). On the other hand, the eastern and northern lands of Russia have never been sufficiently developed due to natural and cultural features, and all projects for the integration of Russian Asia from those proposed by Dr. Badmaev to the last Emperor to Brezhnev’s BAM collapsed due to some strange pattern under the influence of spontaneous or controlled historical disasters.
Be that as it may, access to the cold seas of the North and East should be supplemented by access to the warm seas of the South and West, and only in this case will Russia become geopolitically “complete”. For this, in fact, numerous Russo-Turkish wars were waged, the fruits of which, however, were not reaped by Turks or Russians, but by the British, bloodless the last two traditional empires of the three (the third Austria-Hungary). The last jerk to the vital Russia of the South was the unsuccessful expansion of the USSR into Afghanistan. Geopolitical logic unequivocally shows that Russia will definitely have to return there again, although it would be much better to come as a faithful ally, defender and other than a cruel punisher. Only when the coastline becomes the southern and western borders of Russia,we can talk about the final completion of its continental construction. In this case, it is not necessary to talk about conquests, expansion or annexations. A strong anti-Atlantic parity strategic alliance with the continental European and Asian powers would be sufficient to achieve this goal. Access to the warm seas can be obtained not only through a bloody war, but also through a rational peace beneficial to the geopolitical interests of all continental powers, since the Eurasian strategic integration project will make it possible to all these powers to become really sovereign and independent in the face of the alternative Atlantic Island, united, in turn, by the Monroe strategic doctrine. Straits and warm seas were inaccessible to Russia when there was no such obvious Atlantic factor as the United States, threatening the interests of all of Europe and all of Asia, and the various powers of the mainland challenged each other's superiority in opposing England and leadership in the territorial strategic associations. The implementation of the Monroe Doctrine in America highlighted the whole geopolitical significance of Russia, and therefore the alliance with Russia became a self-evident emperor for all realistic geopolitics of the continent in whatever political forms it was embodied depending on circumstances.The threat of mondialism and atlantic globalism theoretically opens Russia access to the warm seas through a self-evident union of Heartland and Rimland against overseas invaders.
