This thesis is an attempt to explain the Russian resurgence: The case study of Georgia
and Ukraine, with the help of theoretical framework structural realism. Russia having large
territory is full of natural resources, under the leadership of Putin Russia utilized its natural
resources to regain its lost position and power. In this research I tried to find out the answers
of the questions: Why Russia is resurging in Georgia and Ukraine? How we can explain Russia
NATO relations and what will be the future course of this relationship? This study is qualitative
in nature and case study design has been used. Both Primary and secondary data is being
used. This study explains the probability of emergence of the new regional powers, and
alliances due to Russian resurgence that counter US and NATO role in world politics up to a
certain level. Russian decision to enter into the Syrian crisis and the conflict between Turkey
and Russia made my hypothesis true, that Russian resurgence lead to more conflicts between
Russia and NATO. Along with all diplomatic channels and cooperation between NATO and
Russia has been suspended due the Russian resurgence.
