Abstract.

The object of the research is the South Caucasus, the subject of the research is the strategic interests of particular countries, first of all, Western states and Russia, in relation to the South Caucasus. At the very beginning of his research Ozen provides an insight into the history of relations beteen several countries, Russia, Turkey and Western countries, mostly the USA. Those were the countries that have been having certain strategic interests in the territory of the South Caucasus. It is impossible to find solutions of these nettlesome issues without defining the role and place of the South Caucasus both in the regional and global environment. In his research Ozen uses the comparative historical method, methods borrowed from the theory of international relations such as historical comparison and description that allow to restore the actual aspects of certain political phenomena, and logical psychological and chronological methods. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that for the first time in Azerbaijan political science the author makes a serious attempt to fill in the 'blank spots' of the analysis of Russia's, Turkey's, Iran's and the West's strategic interests in the South Caucasus. This creates the link to the analysis of strategic interests of the West and Russia in the South Caucasus. The strategic interests of these countries have areas of common interest but different interests as well. The latter is described by the author of the article as an individual style of a number of analysts who are concerned about the fate of Russia and Western countries. 

Keywords: politicians, the United States, the West, Turkey, Russia, the South Caucasus, strategic interests, the post-Soviet space, international relations, history
