Independent and cutting-edge analysis on global affairs

Analyzing multiple dimensions of the relationship, the author argues that contrary to some experts’ predictions, a strategic partnership between Turkey and Russia is not likely to develop in the near future. The author concludes that: the key question will be how Russia will react to the reduction of its influence in the post-Soviet area. It is very likely to respond by continuing with the current aggressive stance (interference with internal affairs of post-Soviet countries and military and economic conflicts), which will inevitably collide with the interests of Turkey. In effect, Ankara will be forced to revise its previous relatively “soft” policy towards Moscow.
