    The Russian–Turkish rapprochement

    15 February 2018. 

    Relations between Russia and Turkey have recently swung from comprehensive discord to wide-ranging cooperation, spanning the energy, economic, military and diplomatic spheres. But their rapprochement remains far from a strategic partnership, defined more by tensions and uncertainties than by clearly shared national interests. The pendulum could swing back again.

    The wider implications of Zapad 2017

    17 January 2018. 

    Russia's Zapad 2017 exercise, in which Russia defended Belarus against externally supported extremist groups, conveyed Russia's determination to re-establish its sphere of influence in the face of NATO’s perceived expansionism. NATO must not allow the fact that Zapad was less aggressive than some had feared to blunt its message of greater vigilance and preparedness, nor shake its firm commitment to eastern European allies.
