Report launch: Myths and misconceptions in the debate on Russia

— What are some of the common misperceptions guiding policy on Russia?

From foreign policy ambitions to internal political leadership, the Russian state’s agenda is poorly understood, and when reinforced across the globe, these myths become even more costly.

At this event, the authors of a recently published report debunk the most pervasive myths held about Russia.

  • What are the common misconceptions surrounding Russian internal policymaking and political structure?

  • What assumptions are clouding the West’s understanding of Russia’s foreign policy goals?

  • Are there misconceptions surrounding Russia’s relationship with global powers such as China and post-Soviet states?

  • What are the policy consequences of this and how might they be overcome?
