This article is a brief analysis of the trends of political and geographical processes in the post-Soviet countries, theoretical and methodological principles of constructive geostrategy are defined and the stages of their course are outlined. Particular attention is paid to the last mentioned, because its isolation was carried out through the Russian intervention into Ukraine and the strengthening of ties within the Eurasian Economic Community.Moreover, relations with each country are considered. In order to do this, the regions of interaction on the basis of geographic and geopolitical factors have been identified. These are, in particular, the regions of the Eastern Baltic (the states of the EU and NATO) and the GUAM (regional association of countries, most of which are Associate Members of the EU). The Russian Federation is allocated to be a separate region as a regional leader among the post-Soviet countries and the most complicated for us in the relations of the subject with its neo-imperial geopolitical ambitions. What is more, in a separate group are the Allied states of Russia (Belarus and Armenia). And lastly, Central Asia consistent in all respects is highlighted. Analysis of relations with all countries is performed in three dimensions: geopolitical, geoeconomic and geocultural. After that a constructive geostrategy which primarily relies on Ukrainian interests, but is acceptable to each subject, has been developed. Significant emphasis was put on maintaining positive relations and existing positions in the countries markets. This does not apply to Russia, with which relations will remain cool in the future, and trade and economic cooperation requires immediate diversification to ensure geopolitical interests.
