At the end of July Roskomnadzor blocked Re: Russia, and we took a timeout to relaunch the project’s website. It is now available in an English-language version also — and we will continue working on expanding the selection of materials available for English readers.
Re: Russia will feature:
in-depth expertise — reports, studies, articles, and discussions;
current analytics — conceptual commentary on current events and an overview of trends in Russian economy and social life;
a digest of local and international Russia-related expertise — a comprehensive and systematic review of research and data published on Russian politics, economy, and society.
Some of Re: Russia’s earlier studies that are now available in English include:
a study of the effect of economic sanctions on Russia's political and economic future — co-authored with economists Sergei Aleksashenko, Oleg Buklemishev, and Oleg Vyugin;
analysis of a paradoxical surge of optimism regarding the state of the Russian economy among Russian businessmen and people at large this spring;
Re: Russia Director Kirill Rogov’s take on sanctions backlashing against the Western democracies;
review of media consumption trends in Russia.
