Ruslands udenrigspolitik: fra Jeltsins vesternisering til Putins nyimperalism
This report looks at Russian foreign policy in light of the 2008 Georgian conflict. It argues that even if Georgia initiated the conflict, Russia's rough response was a long-prepared foreign policy choice. The author argues that Russia understands the situation as a zero-sum game in which it would lose its say in the region if Western countries would enhance their influence. He assumes the risk of long-term confrontation between Russia and the West has increased.
