CURRENT GEOPOLITICAL TRENDS IN THE BLACK SEA REGION

The weakening of the US global influence in recent years has led to a formation of geopolitical vacuum in various regions of the World, where old and new regional players are rushing to fill their dominance. This led to regional instability, with which the US is already unable to cope. As a result, the international relations system is undergoing significant deformation toward multipolarity, accompanied by zones of instability, local and regional conflicts and geopolitical faults. One of such examples was the Wider Middle East explosion, manifested by the formation of the Islamic state and the civil war in Syria, which the United States alone are unable to cope with. Consequently, one can witness a loss of confidence in the US coming from the European allies and the destruction of Atlantic solidarity between them.
