Geopolitical triangles playÂ an important role in changing the balanceÂ of power in the international arena in theÂ context of competition between traditionalÂ and emerging powers. In political discourse,Â there are several different interpretations ofÂ the concept of â€œtriangleâ€ . The formation ofÂ triangles occurs under the simultaneous influence of two factors - the political strategyÂ of the states and the geopolitical situation.Â The article explores the configuration of triangles in the post-bipolar world. ParticularÂ attention is paid to the selection criteria forÂ countries lying at the top of triangles: theseÂ are either the most powerful states (bothÂ traditional and emerging powers), or pivotÂ countries.In comparison to 1970-s with one strategic triangle (US-China-Russia) currently there are many regionalÂ geopolitical triangles, representing predominantly ascending centers of power, which affect not only regionalÂ security and maintain balanceÂ of power in the respective regions, but also have global impact. The article presentsÂ a theoretical overview of triangles based onÂ an applied analysis of the US-China-RussiaÂ strategic triangle, as well as of two regionalÂ interaction schemes that are important forÂ the Russian foreign policy strategy â€“ Russia-India-China and Russia-Iran-Turkey.The interaction in the strategic triangle of the RF-China-USA is analyzed in anÂ article in the political sphere (within theÂ framework of the UN, international institutes BRICS, SCO, EAEU, Belt and RoadÂ Initiative), in the economic and financialÂ fields, infrastructural, scientific potentialsÂ are compared, as well as military potentialÂ and military technologies. For applied analysis of this traditional triangle, the theoretical scheme of L. Dittmer isÂ used.The conclusion is made about the idealÂ configuration of geopolitical triangles and the redistribution of the power potential of traditional and emerging centers of power within the strategic triangle of the RF-PRC-USA.
