Shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the process of Eurasian integration began in new forms of cooperation between the newly independent states. over the years, a number of agreements on mutual cooperation have been signed focusing primarily on deepening and strengthening the economic ties of the Member states, particularly among the largest countries, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. The authors analyse the types and main characteristics of the modern Eurasian integration processes and their institutional structure. The paper presents the integration processes based on the international trade association, among which two inter-state integration structures stand out – the Eurasian Economic Community and the Eurasian Economic Union. The authors are of the opinion that these integration processes are examples of dynamic regional linking and are based on the already known models of economic union of countries. on the basis of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Community signed in Astana, Kazakhstan, on 29th May 2014, the beginning of the Union activity was announced – 1st January 2015.
