The Russia in the World programme looks at a range of important themes, including political processes beyond the Kremlin walls and the role of Russia's regional government in domestic policy-making.

Infrastructure is another major part of our research at RUSI, focusing on Russia's maritime and military logistical complexes. We also analyse the importance of the Russian Orthodox Church in Russia's domestic and foreign policy decisions, and aim to unpack the main drivers of Russia's foreign and security policies in and beyond the former Soviet Union.
