Abstract :

Economic considerations have made the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) members become less concerned about asserting their independence. This increases the possibility of a reintegration, at least economically, among the former Soviet Union states. Reintegration may not include the Baltic States, which refuse to voluntarily go back to any configuration similar to the former Soviet Union. Despite the failure of the CIS to enforce many of its decisions and policies, the beginnings of reintegration can be seen in the growing number of bilateral agreements among the CIS members.
