The conflict around Nagorno-Karabakh was one of the first of its kind in the former USSR. Over the past quarter of a century, it has transformed from an intercommunal and inter-republic conflict within a single state (the USSR) into a protracted confrontation between Armenia and Azerbaijan with the prospects for resolution being unclear. Russia (the successor to the USSR) has expressed an interest in settling this confrontation, as have neighbouring Turkey and Iran, and a number of external actors, namely the United States and the European Union.

The report outlines the dynamics and structure of ties between Russia and Turkey in trade, economics, construction, energy and non-for-profit sector. The authors emphasize the overall progressive nature of the bilateral relations. However, the uncertain geopolitical situation largely linked to third countries affects several major joint economic projects, and could bring about negative consequences in the future. The political forces in both countries are also influenced by public demand, which softenes the worsening political differences, despite certain contradictory views and complicated regional problems.

According to various estimates, the share of Turkish construction companies on the Russian market before the crisis was between 20 per cent and one third.
