This chapter examines the strategic interests of China and Russia in Central Asia. During the Yeltsin period, Russia's policies toward Central Asia were aimed at preserving its traditional strategic influence. However, it was also during this period that Russia withdrew strategically from Central Asia. President Putin, on the other hand, espoused a “great power” strategy, which sought to promote the integration of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). This aim was in accord with Russia's efforts to recover its traditional levels of geopolitical influence in Central Asia. China realized its strategic interests in Central Asia by two important means: bilaterally and through multilateral regional organization such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).

Keywords:   Yeltsin period, Russian policies, Vladimir Putin, great power strategy, CIS, multilateral regional organization, SCO
