First, it offers a well-curated selection of key events that truly warrant an observer’s attention, captured in a comprehensive and accurate synthesis that leaves no stone unturned. Second, the analysis it provides is intricate, nuanced, and impartial, steering clear of imposing any ideologically or politically driven narratives.

I find R.Politik to be an essential resource for understanding the Russian political environment and assessing potential business risks. The bulletin has been instrumental in providing my company with nuanced and credible insights.

R.Politik serves as a nuanced and sobering lens through which to view Russian politics. It provides invaluable insights into the Kremlin’s actions, public sentiment, and key political and economic trends. What sets R.Politik apart is its acute focus on the thoughts and actions of Russia’s technocratic elites, especially how they navigate current challenges. I’m not aware of any other resource that delivers this level of detail, backed by highly reliable first-hand sources, on a consistent basis. While R.Politik wisely refrains from making predictions, it shapes our expectations effectively, enabling us to align our civil society-focused work accordingly. Its unique blend of detailed analysis, insightful overviews, and impeccable sourcing makes it an indispensable resource for any organization focused on Russia or the broader region.

The Russia Studies Program at CNA has been using R.Politik for several years now. R.Politik provides deep coverage of a wide range of issues, primarily on domestic politics, but also on economic trends and interactions with key foreign powers. We have found that Tatiana Stanovaya’s analysis of Russian politics and foreign policy provides unmatched insights into internal deliberations in the Kremlin and the decision-making process overall.


R.Politik’s bulletins are my go-to source for understanding Russia’s elite and political dynamics, particularly in times when accurate information is scarce or clouded by conflicts. Your impartial, comprehensive analysis is second to none and has become an indispensable resource in my work.

Natasha Groom, Senior Director, Inter Mediate

I have been a subscriber to R.Politik since the beginning of 2018, and I am very satisfied with it. I think it is very different compared to other media. First of all, it is very specific, particularly on elites and ruling circles, and therefore it allows us to penetrate the world of a fairly impenetrable country, the world of the Russian ruling elite. The value of R.Politik is not only that it offers good analysis but also that the analysis is sourced from real insider sources. I believe that this is what makes the difference in the quality of R.Politik’s analyses.

Régis Genté, journalist (Caucasus, Central Asia, Russia)

R.Politik’s analysis is consistently top-tier—informative, perceptive, thought-provoking, and exceptionally well-researched. The quality of the bulletin is consistently outstanding, making it an indispensable resource for my work. I wholeheartedly recommend R.Politik to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of current and future developments in Russia.
