1 An early form of the idea of Greater Eurasian Partnership came into being in Putin’s 2015 Annual Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly, when he initiated the idea of establishing an economic partnership between the Eurasian Economic Union and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and ASEAN.
