||在現代世界，許多整合團體已經發展起來，而東南亞國家盟是其中之一（簡稱東盟） 。 東盟為東南亞地區政治，經濟和文化的政府間組織。 東盟成員包括以下國家：文萊，越南，印度尼西亞，柬埔寨，寮國，馬來西亞，緬甸，新加坡，泰國和菲律賓。 俄羅斯做為世界舞台上的重要參與者，同時也積極參與該區域的建設。 本文探討了俄羅斯與東盟國傢伙伴關係的重要趨勢和問題。 為此，我們將認真分析亞太地區的經濟，政治和文化形勢。 本文也會有一些政策建議。
||In the modern world, numerous integration groups have developed. One such is ASEAN, a regional political, economic and cultural intergovernmental organization of South-East Asia. Its members are the following countries: Brunei, Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines. Russia is an important player on the world stage and it also takes an active part in the life of this region. This thesis examines the key tendencies and problems of the partnership between Russia and ASEAN countries. To do this, we will carefully analyze the economic, political and cultural situation in the Asia-Pacific region. This thesis will also have some policy recommendations.
