    Russia-India: From Rethink to Adjust to Upgrade

    Russian-Indian relations are traditionally good. The chemistry between the leaders is excellent, and members of the public are well disposed toward each other. Economic ties have long been stalling, however, and mutual suspicions have recently been creeping in over India’s relations with America, and Russia’s with China. To make the good relationship truly great, Moscow must rethink, adjust, and upgrade its approach to India. Vladimir Putin’s forthcoming visit to New Delhi could be a starting point.

    Alongside its traditional external democracy support, the EU needs to begin drawing on lessons and influences from other countries to help address Europe’s own democracy problems.

  • Russia’s Energy Deals with China May Backfire on the Kremlin

    • November 23, 2021

    Yet this approach will, in the longer run, inevitably have unintended downsides for Russia itself. If Moscow doubles down on building more pipelines to China as a counterweight to its reliance on energy exports to Europe, it might find within a decade that it is highly dependent on a sole consumer at the other end of the pipeline.

    The EU Should Stand Firm on Turkey

    To avoid an open rule-of-law dialogue with the EU, Turkey is being selective in its areas of engagement with the bloc. The union must make clear that compartmentalizing EU-Turkey relations to suit Ankara’s domestic political convenience is not acceptable.
