Policy Study


EU-Russia relations have been seriously strained in the past few years, characterised by mutual mistrust and tension and marked by several core unresolved issues, including the crisis in Ukraine, the MH-17 case, disinformation campaigns and cyberattacks and the sentencing and treatment of opposition politician Alexei Navalny.

The publication series “EU-Russia relations” consists of six policy briefs, written by European and Russian experts, which analyse selected topics of interest to the bilateral relationship, taking into account some of the most recent developments, including events around Covid-19.

This series aims at fostering a better understanding of obstacles and opportunities for engagement with Russia, with a special focus on Russian external action. The series further aims at proposing policy recommendations that could lay the ground for a more coherent future EU-Russia engagement.
