Japan and the non-Russian Successor States of the Former Soviet Union

  • Raymond Hutchings


In this chapter the successor states to the former USSR, apart from Russia, are listed alphabetically. If formed into regional groups approximately in order of their nearness to Japan, the Central Asian States would come first: Kazakstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan. Second would come the Caucasian states: Armenia, Azerbaydzhan, Georgia. Third would come the southern states: Moldova, Ukraine. Fourth would come the western states: Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. A conjecture that distance would tend to dilute Japanese economic involvement was found to have some justification.
