This issue of the journal presented to the reader includes five blocks. The first one is devoted to economic problems. The article by Petr P. Yakovlev analyzes the current agenda of trade and economic relations between Russia and Latin America, which, in the context of the strategic turn of the Russian Federation towards cooperation with friendly and neutral states, is of particular importance. Having studied existing assessments of the level of digitalization of the economy, Svetlana Y. Revinova and Diana Pamela Chavarry Gálvez offer their own methodology for solving this problem, applicable to Latin American countries, taking into account their regional characteristics.

The authors of the second block examine the problems of leftist forces that have come to power in a number of countries in the region. The article prepared by Vladimir M. Davydov and Anna E. Agapova provides a comparative analysis of two waves of “left drift” in Latin America and notes both certain continuities and changes in their ideological preferences and policies, while the new reality complicates the context of their relations with the Russian Federation. Sergey M. Khenkin reveals the vicissitudes of the political struggle in Spain in 2023 and shows that when forming the government, the Partido Socialista Obrero Español made concessions to the nationalists and separatists of Catalonia and the Basque Country, and between the center-left cabinet of ministers and the right-wing opposition (which has significant political and electoral potential) an unstable balance has been established.

The third block, prepared by Latin American researchers, analyzes the human rights of vulnerable groups. Gabriel Dourado Rocha devotes his article to the protection of indigenous peoples within the framework of the Inter-American human rights system, Carolina Riveros Ferrada, Rommy Alvarez Escudero, Eduardo Aldunate Lizana and Angela Arenas Massa, to the statements of the Inter-American Court regarding patients from vulnerable groups in Chile, and Stephanie Nicolette Merle Zuvic – to the problems of indigenous children and adolescents in Chile.

The fourth block is devoted to the use of “soft power” as an element of political influence. Based on a sociological survey, Olga G. Leonova reveals the peculiarities of the perception of Brazilian “soft power” by Russian students and shows that respondents do not always have specific knowledge about the current situation in this Latin American country, but their perception of “soft power” of Brazil is neutral with signs of subconscious sympathy. The article by Nikolay V. Kalashnikov examines the history and current state of Russian-Cuban cooperation, as well as the opportunities and problems of Russia’s use of “soft power” and notes that in the current situation, its promotion can be carried out mainly through government support and requires consistency and duration.

The editors of the journal continue to introduce readers to new books published in Russia. The fifth block of this issue contains the opinion of Alexey S. Naumov on the monograph “Digital Transformation in Latin America”, prepared by the Center for Economic Research of the Institute of Latin American Studies of Russian Academy of Sciences and edited by Liudmila N. Simonova.
