Since the collapse of USSR in 1991, there has emerged a dynamic fluctuation of conflict
and cooperation in the transitional process of the post-socialist states of Eurasia. On the
one hand, active economic cooperation among Eurasian countries and their neighboring
countries led to the establishment of the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union). On the other
hand,there still exist many kinds of territorial disputes and civil wars in the Eurasian
countries and clashes of social and cultural values.

conflict and the Cold War. However, conflicts can provide a society with dynamics that
are necessary for the development of a society through a process of proper management,
although failure to manage conflicts can cause a serious crisis. For this reason,
understanding the conflicts in the post-socialist period can serve as a foundation for
understanding the prosperous future of Eurasia, including Northeast Asia.
The year of 2017 is the centennial anniversary of the Russian Revolution. The Russian
