Why should I subscribe to R.Politik?
We pride ourselves on our objectivity, exclusivity and accuracy. In our writing, we draw on the information available in the media (identifying the nuances and highlighting hidden details), the social media activity of Russian thought leaders, and our own sources in Moscow. If you would like to assess the quality of our analysis before subscribing, we can provide you with example bulletins.
Does R.Politik support Putin?
R.Politik is politically neutral and we aim for total impartiality. Our goal is simple: to help readers understand the motivations of officials, their concerns, expectations and tactical calculations. We explore what is important for the Kremlin today, whether it is geopolitics, elections, protest movements or economic changes.
Where does your money come from?
We have no investors, no sponsors and no patrons. R.Politik’s only source of funding is through its subscribers and we have no ties to the Russian government, its proxies, or media outlets close to the Kremlin.
Who is your audience?
We are an English-language product aimed at an international audience. Our readers include government officials, NGO workers, diplomats, think-tank analysts and executives at multinational companies. For diplomats and officials, we shed crucial light on Kremlin decision-making. And for business our research is an essential part of risk analysis — helping managers in Russia devise better strategies, build partnerships and foster good relations with the authorities.
How often does the bulletin come out?
Our bulletin is published on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. In the event of serious and urgent developments (e.g. a war or major political crisis), we may put out special reports. No bulletins will be issued in August.
How much does the bulletin cost?
For a year’s subscription we charge €1,200. We do not issue subscriptions for any less than a year.
