Operational result of the strategy being executed by political-economic US clans, which brought to power the current US President Barack Obama and keep under control the majority of European countries political leaders, influence the world economy future and the Russian economy in 2015–2016, is manipulative handling of world oil prices. This strategy is designed to create new economic and political balance of powers in the global arena through trying to expropriate the accumulated financial-economic resources of a number of oil-exporting countries and to focus the short- and medium-term trend of stimulating antirecessionary economic development of the West developed countries, based on increasing natural and industrial resources exploitation, especially Russia, on nonequivalent economic compensation for supplied energy resources. At the same time there is an attempt to unhinge” those political regimes, including Russia, which the West doesn’t like. Russia should draw up adequate conclusions from the current situation, they should form the basis for the national economic sovereignty policy in the ХХI century.

At last year’s meeting of the heads of states, relations between Russia and India were identified as relations of privileged strategic partnership partly because the two countries actively support the integration vector in co-operation of all the BRICS countries and EAEU. In contrast to the raw structure of the Russian exports to many other countries, Russian supplies to India are dominated by high-tech products, reaching up to a third of these supplies cost. Similar remains the share of these products in the import from India to Russia. This is an evidence of the due quality of our economic links. In addition, recently India is in vanguard of the wide use of different “flexible power” tools in modern Asia. The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of India to the Russian Federation Pundi Shrinivasan Raghavan in his interview with the head of the Center for Eurasian Cooperation and Development (CECD) Olga Biryukova specially for the “Economic Strategies” magazine told about peculiarities of public diplomacy in India and prospects of integration processes in Eurasia and the BRICS countries.
One of the US most important competitive advantages is the ability to carry out multi-way strategic financial transactions allowing to export arising crisis phenomena out of the US economy, providing the stability of proper development.
