The development paths of the former countries of that State have been too far apart.

The Assembly Secretary General Andrey Belyaninov shared this opinion on the air of the radio station "Moscow speaking". The representative of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly noted the success of Kazakhstan, despite the crisis situation that arose at the beginning of the year.

“Back to the Soviet Union? It’s also a well-worn phrase: whoever has a heart cannot help but regret, and whoever has a mind… don’t be nostalgic… or rather, you can be nostalgic, but it’s not worth re-establishing the Soviet Union. The fact that now every country has its own economy and there are quite serious flaws, though this is said not very loudly about,  it is very important. I still think that even the 15 republics of the former Soviet Union have diverged so much systematically that it will be very difficult to restore some economic processes. In my opinion, Kazakhstan among the former republics of the Soviet Union has taken place like no other. And the fact that problems appear, they ripen, and they, perhaps, were dealt with not so correctly from the standpoint of state policy. As they sometimes say, it turned out the way it happened.”

Earlier, Mikhail Gorbachev assessed the prospect of re-establishing the USSR. In an interview with the radio station "Govorit Moskva" he said that this would take a very long time. In his opinion, the former Soviet republics have lost their political experience.

The Eurasian Peoples' Assembly is an international non-governmental organization established in 2017 aimed at creating a social integration model in the name of establishing peace and harmony through the development of multilateral cooperation and public (people's) diplomacy in the Eurasian space. The Assembly brings together representatives of more than 45 countries.
