Any discussion of Russian foreign policy that has even a modicum of meaning inevitably begins with a question about the conditions and trends in the world as a whole. Our understanding of this world, our perception of the causal relations between events therein determine the way we position Russia, the way we see the most attractive opportunities or the direst dangers for our country.

Anton Tsvetov Media and Government Relations Manager at the Russian International Affairs Council

Russia’s relations with the West painfully severed by the Ukraine crisis, Moscow has been bolstering the Eastern dimension of its foreign policy. It is building a closer partnership with China and demonstrating deeper interest in Asian affairs overall. This has spurred genuine concern in Europe as politicians and observers are wondering how permanent, decisive and final this pivot is and what should European leaders make of it. Asia asks these questions as well, wondering whether Russia’s current policy choices are for long.
