Onbedoelde gevolgen van de liquidatie van generaal Soleimani
Cadeautje voor Vladimir Poetin        
 

Is de liquidatie van de Iraanse generaal een Amerikaans succes of niet? Volgens Paul Aarts zijn er een aantal onbedoelde gevolgen. In ieder geval vaart Vladimir Poetin er wel bij. 

 

The Importance of understanding Russian strategic culture   


Although the Netherlands and many states in Europe consider Russia a security threat, they currently possess little institutional knowledge about Russia. According to Ivor Wiltenburg reinvesting in ‘knowing Russia’ would be highly advisable.

 

De illusie van détente
Van serieuze toenadering tussen Oekraïne en Rusland is geen sprake
 

De verkiezing van Volodymir Zelenski tot president in april 2019, heeft geleid tot speculaties over een mogelijke détente in de relatie tussen Oekraïne en Rusland. Alleen heeft Moskou volgens Max Bader geen belang bij het doorbreken van de status quo.

                                             

‘Pulling the Strings’ within the General Assembly          
How Multipolarity Explains Russia’s Reengagement in Sub-Saharan Africa
 

The Russia-Africa Summit in 2019 has been seen as evidence that Russia is making its comeback on the African continent. Most sub-Saharan African countries back Russia in the United Nations, even at the cost of some of their own core values or interests.           

 

Political Synergy: How the European Far-Right and Russia Have Joined

Forces Against Brussels

 

Russia provides a crucial platform for a variety of populist right-wing politicians. This is not only benefitting the populists. Beatrix Campbell states that supporting the populist right allows Russia to punch well above its weight in driving the current international agenda.

In search of a European Russia strategy


A more isolationist US, a more assertive Russia, and the growing global influence of China have raised questions about the EU’s place and role in the world. Against this background, the EU will also need a strategic and more effective approach in its relations with Russia.
 

A War on Two Cold Fronts: Real and False Threats        

Why China needs more attention than Russia

 

Robert Duigan argues that the West is too busy bickering over the petty victories of Russia. In the meantime China has slid out of focus. He argues that Russia merely wants to be left alone, and that China, especially since Xi Jinping took power in 2013, is actively seeking a dominant role in world affairs.
