Are U.S. sanctions on Russia working? Does Russia use its energy resources as a tool to coerce European countries? Will Russia’s economic stagnation affect the country’s presidential election scheduled for March 2018?
Any assessment of Russian foreign policy and the Kremlin’s relations with the United States depends on a clear-eyed understanding of Russian political economy. FPRI’s Eurasia Program features credible, expert analysis on key themes in Russian political economy.
The Russia Political Economy Project will publish papers and host events in Washington, New York, and other cities on the subject. The Project also includes the FPRI Bear Market Brief, which provides a daily round-up of the major news items related to Russian politics and economics.
