Astakhov, comes to a conclusion, that both right and left regimes present on the continent should hold miscalculated radical economic solutions out as they might put national and regional stability in danger which may raise  even more due to the fact that the Latin American's wish to have  drawn up  a common joint continental policy, is being left in the past.

Astakhova in her article "Russia and Spain: potential for cooperation” assesses the possibilities for expansion of the Russian-Spanish relations in the complex international environment in regard of the fact that Spain is a member of the European Union, OTAN Block’s discipline, Occidental sanctioning policy against Russia.
