Chapter Summary

The Russian leadership considered Russia not as an ordinary &t;successor state&t; in the sense of international law (Membership and Representation of States), but as a special kind of &t;continuity state&t;. The continuity in terms of power politics thus determined Russias thinking with regard to foreign policy. This is why it appreciated the international acceptance of its particular status as a first meaningful success of its foreign policy. This chapter discusses of the USSR under Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, and Putin. Although Russia considers the expansion of the Security Council as the key component of UN reforms, other fields should also be included in the reform process.
