This chapter discusses Russia's influence in Central Asia and how Central Asian leaders reacted to Russia's policies toward them. Russia often relied on various tools of manipulation in pursuit of its objectives in Central Asia, which in turn undermined its influence in the region. In response, Central Asian governments have resorted to a variety of methods to counter Moscow's influence. Russia's relations with Kazakhstan—marked by openness, close collaboration, and a certain amount of confronting and engaging as well as give-and-take that are necessary for a robust relationship—offer hope for a more constructive future for Russia's partnership with Central Asia.

Keywords:   Russia, Central Asia, Central Asian leaders, Central Asian governments, Moscow, Kazakhstan
