For Think Tanks

Originally, R.Politik was designed to offer insights primarily to corporations, governments, and academic institutions. However, as R.Politik has evolved, think tanks have emerged as a significant client base. A number of prestigious global think tanks now subscribe to our bulletin. This shift highlights the bulletin’s efficacy and underscores how R.Politik serves as a complementary resource rather than a competitor to these think tanks. We provide:

  • Unbiased information on Russian events and trends inside and surrounding Russia.
  • Exclusive insights derived from our long-standing expertise.
  • Foundational material for reports and studies.

In summary, we’ve become an invaluable resource for think tanks in drawing their own informed conclusions.
