Russia and the Rest: Nine Strategic Dialogues with U.S. Global Pivotal Partners on Russia

This project seeks to better understand Russia’s goals for its relationships with key U.S. pivotal partners globally and draw insights on how those relationships constrain and shape Russian-Chinese strategic cooperation. TLN is conducting a series of individual dialogues with nine non-Atlantic pivotal partners: Brazil, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, and Turkey. These workshops focus on how Russia’s relations with other powers affect its stance towards its war on Ukraine, its strategic alignment with China, and what can be learned about Russia’s motivations from perspectives outside the traditional trans-Atlantic lens.
