Author: Nadia Alexandrova-Arbatova
Preface by: Dimitrios Triantaphyllou
The perspective of Russia, a key regional stakeholder, regarding developments in the wider Black Sea area is one that is sadly missing in the current English language bibliography. It is in this context that the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS) has reached out to Nadia Arbatova, one of Russia’s best analytical minds, to contribute with this Xenophon Paper on Regional Cooperation in the Black Sea Area in the Context of EU-Russia Relations.
Nadia Arbatova while sharing her expertise on Russia’s domestic and international affairs attempts to present the perspectives of the Russian political elite, their expectations in engaging with the European Union (EU) and their policy formulations regarding both the Black Sea region in general and other regional actors. In other words, this Xenophon Paper informs the policymakers regarding the expectations and aims of a power that needs to be reckoned with while formulating policies regarding the region.
