The End of the post-Soviet Space

The concept of the post-Soviet space was the easiest way to describe the space remaining after the collapse of the USSR. It did describe some cultural commonalities that used to exist in post-Soviet countries. But even if those commonalities actually existed thirty years ago and had political significance, today it is counterproductive to use the concept. My project reflects on the proper means to describe that space.
