Transborder Co-Operation of Ukraine under Modern Conditions of its Geo-Economic Strategy
The article conducts SWOT analysis of alternative vectors of geo-economic strategy of Ukraine. Results of the analysis are used to reveal positive and negative sides of establishment of the zone of free trade with European Union (EU) and joining the Customs Union of Belarus, Kazakhstan and Russia (Customs Union of BKR). The article states that under conditions of the transitional period of the world system, the struggle between its components becomes sharper and activity of such a powerful economic participant as China becomes stronger. In this situation it is expedient for EU and Customs Union of BKR to carry out joint geo-economic strategy and to stop fighting for inclusion of Ukraine into the sphere of their geo-economic interests. The article justifies a necessity of strengthening of the transborder co-operation by Ukraine with neighbouring countries, especially with Russia, with which Ukraine has the longest common border. Euro-regions should become the basic form of transborder co-operation. They could also serve as connecting vessels, with the help of which economic growth and socio-economic integration could be performed at the meso-level. In the event of realisation of euro-integration vector by Ukraine, the Russian-Ukrainian border with a carcass of euro-regions could become a certain counterbalance to euro-integration.
