Neo Eurasianism, which emerged from the 1980s, at the end of the Soviet Union, has spread in Russian society through several stages of development. On the other hand, the Putin’s regime, which was launched in 2000, has adopted the concept of neo Eurasianism in earnest since the 2010s, especially in the process of the annexation of Crimea in 2014, the civil war in eastern Ukraine, and the outbreak of the Ukraine war in February 2022. Putin has selectively used Eurasian ideas as his means of governance, emphasizing the same content as neo Eurasian claims, including Alexander Dugin, but he cannot identify himself with Eurasianists on various grounds, including power politics. The Ukraine war was also waged with enthusiastic support from neo Eurasianists, but it casts many dark sides on the path of the Putin’s regime. However, even after the Putin administration, the aftermath of the neo-Eurasian ideology and Russian nationalism is expected to continue for a considerable time.
