Finally, clustering processes of the post-Soviet states for the economic convergence and for the economic integration seems to be unaffected by each other. Eurasian regionalism is a politically steered process of integration of several postcommunist states with widely varying degrees of global presence and exposure. Part of its impetus has been provided by the European experience of regional integration, which is envied by countries as different as Russia and Kazakhstan.

Peoples and States after 1989: The Political Costs of Incomplete National Revolutions

Peoples and States after 1989: The Political Costs of Incomplete National Revolutions. The second disintegration of the empire this century has reopened the debate over Russian state and nation building with direct implications both for Russia's reform process and for its relations with other newly independent states. In December 1991, the Russian Federation was transformed into an independent state as a historically formed regional entity, not as a nation state. Scholars argue that the Russian empire was built at the cost of Russia's own sense of nationhood.

A stateless nation is an ethnic group or nation that does not possess its own state and is not the majority population in any nation state. The term "stateless" implies that the group "should have" such a state. Members of stateless nations may be citizens of the country in which they live, or they may be denied citizenship by that country. Stateless nations are usually not represented in international sports or in international organisations such as the United Nations
