TDC President for the WSJ: Russia’s New Foreign Policy Looks Old and Soviet

Maksym Skrypchenko, President of the Transatlantic Dialogue Center, recently wrote an opinion article for the Wall Street Journal.

In his analysis of the recently approved Concept of Russia’s Foreign Policy, signed by Putin on March 31, 2023, he argues that it signals a significant shift towards a confrontational stance reminiscent of the Soviet era. He emphasizes the adoption of terms such as “Anglo-Saxon states” and the reordering of regional priorities as key indicators of this change. In his opinion, the Kremlin’s strategic reorientation towards non-Western countries and emerging powers, coupled with the downplaying of traditional Western allies, raises concerns about the future trajectory of international politics and the potential for increased tensions between Russia and the West.
