Russian Foreign Policy: Interests, Vectors, and Sectors
In a truly contemporary analysis of Moscow′s relations with its neighbours and other strategic international actors, Gvosdev and Marsh use a comprehensive vectors approach, dividing the world into eight geographic zones. Each vector chapter looks at the dynamics of key bilateral relationships while highlighting major topical issues--oil and energy, defence policy, economic policy, the role of international institutions, and the impact of major interest groups or influencers--demonstrating that Russia formulates multiple, sometimes contrasting, foreign policies. Providing rich historical context as well as exposure to the scholarly literature, the authors offer an incisive look at how and why Russia partners with some states while it counter-balances others.
