Economy
No doubt, it is the economic cooperation that will reenergize broader relations between Russia and Ukraine.
One of the key economic agreements between the two countries signed during the Russian-Ukrainian summit is the inter-bank cooperation deal between Ukreximbank and Russia`s Bank VTB. Previously Russian Prime Minister V. Putin promised to Kyiv a $500m credit program from VTB to lessen Ukraine`s dependency on Western financial institutions.

Brazil is central to the Kremlin`s politics of increasing assertiveness in Latin America. From this standpoint Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva who plans to visit Moscow on May 13-14 — a pragmatic and predictable leader remaining a patriot of his own country despite the onslaught of globalization — is an almost ideal partner.
Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva established himself in international politics in the epoch of neocon dominance. 

Russian President D. Medvedev will visit Turkey om May 11, 2010.
The trade turnover between Russia and Turkey has topped $30 bn, the ambitious target to be attained within the coming five years being $100 bn. Russia`s investments in Turkey contently total over $4 bn, and Turkey`s in Russia - over $6 bn. Russia supplies around 70% of Turkey`s fuel demand, and - as a plan for the future - the two countries have reached agreements on nuclear energy cooperation (Russian companies will construct one or several nuclear power plants in Turkey).
