    Our operations are solely sustained by our subscriber community, ensuring our independence from grants, government funding, or any contributions with potential political biases.

  3. 03

    While we welcome all subscribers, our editorial independence is sacrosanct — no external influence can dictate our topic selection, analytical nuances, tone, or content. This unwavering integrity is at the core of our operations.

We endeavour to demystify the intricacies of the Russian political landscape

By unveiling the rationale behind major trends and key players, we aspire to equip our professional audience with foresight, preparing them for possible future events and scenarios.

Our lens specifically captures elite power struggles, the decision-making processes at both federal and regional levels, and the dynamics of pivotal political terminations and nominations.

Whether you're an analyst, academic, diplomat, or executive, R.Politik aims to be your indispensable compass in navigating Russia's multifaceted political and business terrains.

The nomenclature ‘R.Politik’ encapsulates our commitment to real-world political analysis over conjecture or rhetoric. This name draws inspiration from Realpolitik; mirroring the pragmatic German political doctrine, our analyses are meticulously crafted, devoid of ideological bias or personal inclinations.
