Ukrainians took to the streets in in November 2013. As the movement later known as the Euromaidan, or “Euro Square,” pulled western Ukraine closer to its European neighbors, another powerful force threatened to tear away the country’s eastern half: Russia. Putin’s pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putin’s Russia isn’t afraid to take an aggressive stance against Europeanization in Ukraine, what does that mean for the rest of Russia’s neighbors?

Experts review Russia’s strategic objectives and foreign policy with Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the United States. SPEAKERS Jennifer M. Harris Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations James Nixey Head, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House Alina Polyakova Director of Research, Europe and Eurasia, Atlantic Council
In recent years, Russia's foreign policy has become considerably more asserting, posing a challenge to the United States and its Western allies. In his presentation, Igor Zevelev, a fellow at the Kennan Institute and a former visiting fellow at CSIS, will explore what is driving this shift from the Russian side. He will outline the ways in which Russian foreign policy doctrine today stems primarily from domestic ideas about Russian identity and the reasons why the impact of such thinking has become such a driving force in the past four years.
RUSI Research Fellow Sarah Lain predicts that Russia's foreign policy will continue to be a major story in 2017, especially their relationship with the US in the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump which may have a impact on the current sanctions regime.
The antagonism towards Russia by U.S. media and foreign policy elites goes far beyond allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. elections Visit http://therealnews.com for more stories and help support our work by donating at http://therealnews.com/donate.
Neil Ashdown, Deputy Editor, IHS Jane’s Intelligence Review discusses what Russia’s military modernisation means for its foreign policy; the potential for further conflicts in eastern Europe and Central Asia; and Russian nuclear doctrine.

This video goes back to a Russian TV show in 2011, when Putin's foreign policy wasn't quite as clear to the Russian public as it is today. Nevertheless, he makes his stance known on US foreign policy, and notably, his feelings toward Mr McCain.

As the EU extends sanctions against Russia for at least another six months, we look at Moscow's fraught relationship with the West amid its ongoing involvement in Syria and Ukraine. Despite ongoing differences over Ukraine, NATO and Russia appear to have common interests in Syria and the battle against ISIL. Cooperation or confrontation? That's the big question facing European and American diplomats as Russian foreign policy sparks often contradictory reactions. Wang Yiwei from Renmin University in China, Dmitry Babich from Sputnik International news agency, and former US representative to NATO Kurt Volker join us for some in-depth discussion on the issue.

This lecture on "The True Ambitions of Russian Foreign Policy Today" was given on August 8, 2017 by Brandon J. Weichert. This event was sponsored by the Kosciuszko Chair of Polish Studies and the Center for Intermarium Studies. ------ About the lecture Russian foreign policy objectives are poorly understood today. This is because most analysts look at Russia through Western eyes. But, Russia is not only Moscow. Russia is Siberia and the Far East also. This lecture will provide a three-dimensional view of Russia, it will contextualize Russian actions over the past decade beyond the headlines, and it will illustrate why U.S. foreign policy toward Russia is misguided (and how to correct the strategic misperceptions). About the speaker Brandon J. Weichert is a former congressional staff...

Yet, Russia soon plunged into a period of violence and chaos, weakening its global influence. Into that void stepped Vladimir Putin, who restored order domestically and put Russia back on the stage internationally under his increasingly authoritarian rule. This is an excerpt from Great Decisions 2018's "Russia's Foreign Policy". Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor David Strathairn and featuring the most important voices in international affairs, Great Decisions in Foreign Policy brings you eight half-hour documentaries, each tackling a different challenge facing America today.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov held a meeting Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic in Sochi, Wednesday, during which he praised Croatia for pursuing a “multi-vector foreign policy”.

Two years into the conflict in Ukraine and five years into the war in Syria, Russian foreign policy looms larger than ever. Though sanctions have taken a toll, and relations with the West continue to weaken, President Vladimir Putin is doubling down on Russian influence in both Europe and the Middle East. With no end in sight, is a larger clash with the West inevitable? What more can the United States and Europe do to address Russian policies? And what role, if any, should Russia play in resolving the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine? On Monday, February 22, these questions, and more, will be debated by policymakers, scholars and journalists, including former U.S. Ambassador John Herbst, Buzzfeed World editor Miriam Elder, German Marshall Fund Senior VP Ivan Vejvoda and Transatlantic S...
