The presentation will address issues such as whether President Vladimir Putin is willing to compromise Russia-Europe traditional ties, the main areas of bilateral cooperation and points of concern.
The seminar will provide an overview of what to the future of Russia’s relations with Europe/European Union over the next five-six years. The recent APEC Summit held in Vladivostok in early September has shown Russia’s growing interest in the Pacific Asia and the political will of the Kremlin to extend the nation’s strategic reach into the Indo-Pacific. This made some commentators speculate that Moscow may reassess its relations with Europe, giving the eastern vector of Russia’s foreign and economic policy a priority.
