Fachkonferenz

Europa und Russland-Beziehungen zwischen Abhängigkeiten und Missverständnissen

Konferenz mit MPU

Internationale Experten sprechen über das Verhältnis "Russland-EU: Partnerschaft, Co-Existenz, Kooperation".

Details

Nach dem Zusammenbruch der Sowjetunion Anfang der 90er Jahre orientierte sich die russische Staatsführung wieder verstärkt nach Westen. Durch eine intensive politische und wirtschaftliche Kooperation mit den USA und Europa will Russland seinen internationalen Einfluss langfristig sichern. Dabei legt Präsident Wladimir Putin besonderen Wert auf die europäische Identität seines Landes. Demnach hegt Russland ein besonderes Interesse an einem "einheitlichen Großeuropa" und dem Aufbau eines gemeinsamen "europäischen Hauses".
