Political Strategies in a Multi-Polar World. Where is European Union in All This Story?

To Stay or Not to Stay? Seven Concerns Russia Has about the OSCE

... comparatively low-budget institution. Russia pays about $ 80 million per year as its contribution to the regular budget of the United Nations (not to mention another $ 300 million on UN peacekeeping), and close to $40 million per year to the Council of Europe. The Russian contribution to the OSCE budget has never exceeded $ 10 million per year and the Organization’s field operations have always been relatively inexpensive for Moscow.

... that we are neighbours, share a common history and the country’s large Russian-speaking minority.

This suggests that contrary to initial hopes, the reorientation to the European market away from Russia and the adoption of the terms of the EU DCFTA led to the simplification of the country‘s export structure.To be fair it has to be said that this economic decline is not entirely due to the negative effects of the UKR-EU DCFTA and the trade war ...
