Artykuł naświetla obecne trendy społecznego i ekonomicznego rozwoju państw Ameryki Łacińskiej, opisuje pozycje regionu w rankingach światowych ze względu na promocję programów edukacyjnych w języku rosyjskim w ramach programu federalnego „Język rosyjski” w latach 2011-2015. Udowodniono, że w dzisiejszych skomplikowanych warunkach geopolitycznych i ekonomicznych, Ameryka Łacińska pozostaje tradycyjnym partnerem Rosji, a współpraca, tak samo jak edukacja, jest rozszerzana. Zostały zidentyfikowane kluczowe kraje dla promocji języka rosyjskiego i edukacji w języku rosyjskim z użyciem metodologii klasyfikacji wielokryterialnej. Główne czynniki przyczyniają się do skutecznego osiągnięcia celów, ale też stanowią uciążliwe skutki i stwarzają pewne zagrożenia.
