The Reality of Russian Politics

What we do


We would like to present a new project on Russia’s current politics.

R.Politik is dedicated to explaining and analysing Russian politics for an international audience. We cover all aspects of foreign and domestic policy; from Kremlin infighting to the energy sector, security issues and the latest sociological data. We are fully independent and have no ties to the Russian government.
