As Putin regained the power in Russia, the situation gave a second chance to this country to avoid both the West and the benefits of convergence with its foreign policy and regional and trans-regional equations. This can take advantages from other side. Approach of Russia to divergence and independence with the West will increase level of Russian hegemony on international arena. The main question of this paper is whether Russian foreign policy in Putin new term in office could be continuation of past policies or that it has adopted a policy of continuity and change? With descriptive and analytical methodology, it can be stated that Russian foreign policy in its approaches has changed from the past and the country's foreign policy is more oriented towards Eurasia foundation. However, the balance was known as West axis at once the foundation Atlantic-oriented (West wing) and exchange-based East was executive based on theoretical foundations. Thus, the hypothesis that the changes occurred due to the new international environment adopt a pragmatic approach by Putin in Russia's new foreign policy principles and past and new approaches must be considered.
