“In this report, RAND researchers analyze #Russian views of the #international order. They identify core Russian foreign policy interests, including defense of the regime, influence in its neighborhood, and status as a great power. The authors trace how these interests have led to growing Russian skepticism of the West and to Russia’s current view that the international order is dominated by the United States and is a threat to Russian interests and security.”
