For over twenty-five years Russia’s foreign policy has been shaping and still shapes the architecture of international relations in the post-Soviet territory; its projects, as mechanisms of cooperation, were changing under the pressure of Western political and economic sanctions.1 At the same time, the impulses that urged Russian leaders to act in this area, were taking place inside and outside this territory. The process is still ongoing, yet a careful investigation of its twenty-five year history reveals the factors behind the changed dynamics, forms and results at each successive stage. Russia’s foreign policy was impacted, to different degrees, by both the international climate and situation inside the country. As the state power grew stronger, Russia’s economy was growing less vulnerable and more sustainable than before. The extensive discussion of Russia’s strategy and tactics, as well as diverse mechanisms of interaction in the post-Soviet space, adds relevance to the subject of the present article. We have also discussed certain projects of cooperation in the post-Soviet space against the background of the gradually intensifying competition between Moscow and Brussels for privileged positions in and integration with the post-Soviet Eurasian countries. The events that have been unfolding in Ukraine since the first half of 2014 (the inclusion of Crimea in Russia and the separatist movement in the eastern part of the country), and their obvious repercussions became the starting point of considerable changes in the geopolitical map of the western part of the post-Soviet territory and opened a new stage in Russia’s foreign policy. Today, the substantive content of this stage remains vague, which means that any comprehensive analysis of its impact on Russia’s foreign policies would be premature. It is clear, however, that, in the context of Western sanctions, this situation challenges Russia and the countries that the competing sides want to draw into their integration models. © 2017, CA and CC Press AB.

The aim of the research is to determine the peculiarities of the evaluative categorization of human intelligence in linguistic world images. The study describes the interdisciplinary approach to studying evaluative categorization, which assumes the use of complex methodology including the anthropocentric, the interdisciplinary, and the cognitive principles. The paper suggests a modified cognitive procedure of evaluation, based on determining and using cognitive classification features, and differential abilities of subjects, based on the consideration of their ethnic experience. Research findings can be used in studies on the evaluative categorization of any objects of reality and during the systematization of evaluative linguistic phenomena as a modus representation of knowledge of objects and phenomena in the world. © 2016 Abisheva et al.

The primary purpose is the implementation of the interdisciplinary approach to understanding and the construction of integrative models of understanding literary texts. The interdisciplinary methodological paradigm of studying text understanding, based on the principles of various sciences facilitating the identification of the text understanding essence (cognitive, anthropocentric, dialogue, interdisciplinary principles) is rationalized and described. Methods of various sciences are used in complex: the hermeneutic method (hermeneutic philosophy, hermeneutic psychology), the pragmatic understanding method (pragmatics), the cognitive analysis, the inference method (cognitive linguistics), the discourse analysis method (discourse linguistics) and the modelling method. A literary text understanding integrative model is offered which can be applied during the analysis of various types of texts and their interpretation. The research proves that the interdisciplinary approach facilitates the development of an integrative multilevel model of text understanding, on each level of which, knowledge required to ensure understanding is characterized and disciplines are indicated. © 2016 Dossanova et al.

In this article, the problem of the socio-cultural and pragmatical bases of an interpersonal communication is reviewed; socio-cultural regulation of interaction between partners, representatives of various linguocultural communities which is lead by means of norms, communication postulates is identified. With this purpose, the fact that the speech actscultural scenarios are specific, e.g.the "refusal", "offer", "request", "requirement", "compliment", "criticism", "disagreement", "dispute" and have a national specificityis proved by means of analyzing and comparing speech acts in different cultures. Considerable divergences in their use as means of social control in intercultural situations are shown by analysis of an intercultural interaction between partners from positions of realisation and use of social (generatedby society) communicative postulates.

Religion, which is spreading far and wide in politics, has become an important factor of sociopolitical life; it not only adds a religious dimension to political processes in different countries, but also breeds highly destructive phenomena-political- religious conflicts and political-religious terrorism. Politics and religion have become much closer connected in countries where the position of religion has always been strong (countries of the Islamic world and the Buddhist countries), as well as where the position of religion has been undermined to a certain extent (the post-socialist countries, including Russia). Intertwined with the political process, the religious factor may contribute either to stabilization or destabilization of the political space. To preserve social and state security, it is extremely important to identify the mechanisms and technologies that transform religion into a political tool; this adds urgency to the related problems. Politicalreligious extremism intends to eradicate or, at least, dent political stability through the wide use of ethnoconfessional factors.1 This weakens the administrative tools and creates widespread social disorder, which might completely deform the political regime. The structures of state power should take every possible measure to prevent not only the visible outcrops of political extremism, but also the emergence of radical opposition groups in the political space. Globalization, the steadily developing information society, the latest network technologies, and the refined innovation potential of the production sphere are supplying political extremists with the latest, more indigenous, and refined means and methods.2 This negative political phenomenon, therefore, can and should be opposed by means adequate to its potential and resources, which pushes to the fore the problem of contemporary technologies to be used to oppose potential religious extremism. The upsurge of extremism and terrorism everywhere in the world (Russia being no exception) is not a chance phenomenon, it is historically determined. This means that we must study what has been and is being done to oppose this sociopolitical phenomenon in the Russian Federation and, taking the conclusions as the starting point, recommend the best means and methods for using technological potential to resist political and religious extremism today and in the future. Informal extremist alliances and their activities threaten the country’s national security. © 2016 CA and CC Press AB.

Authors in the article touch issues of efficiency of a banking system of Kazakhstan. According to authors, it is necessary to depart from a formalistic approach of requirements to quality of a banking system. Authors considers that accession to WTO will demand from the Kazakhstan banks system approach to the global competition and the problem of creation of competitive and effective business will demand a complex of actions at the level of the state in the person of regulators and all other elements of a banking system. According to the authors, the new mechanism of interaction between the government and all elements of the banking system will involve systemic risks. If occurring in the financial marketsor on its individual segments risks are of fundamental character, for example, excess demand or excess supply of liquidity, then it will be enough for the National Bank of Kazakhstan to correct used instruments in order to reduce the overall level of risk.
