The second part points out the key determinants of national politics in Ukraine, Moldova, and Belarus, including ethno-demographic, cultural, legal, ethnopolitical and multilateral factors. The article concludes that omitting these determinants hinders the effective planning, organization and control of ethnopolitical management. The failure of state authorities in the region to take these factors into account in formulating geopolitical goals results in a lack of effectiveness of national politics.

The last part of the article also contains recommendations concerning the effective management of ethnopolitics in the countries of Eastern Europe.
