Rusia a cidobRussia and the European Union: a Keystone Relationship by Irina Kobrinskaya.
Documentos CIDOB Europa. Núm. 6. 25 pp.
ISSN: 1886-2837 (online edition).

June 24 2009 marked 15 years of formalized partnership and cooperation between the European Union and Russia. Since then EU-Russian relations had gone through a number of stages. From time to time it is questioned whether a new agreement is achievable and necessary at all. Most recently, - and this might be true for future cooperation - the wider, new global (G-20) or continental formats may turn most adequate to answer new challenges and threats. Though more self-confident, Russia is still in the process of building a new national identity, accompanied by the paroxysms of nationalism and xenophobia, “sovereign democracy” deviations in domestic affairs, moderate oscillations in the choice of foreign partners, rather often – excessive assertiveness. All that in no way makes Moscow an easy partner for the 15 years-long road led the partners from mutual illusions, misevaluations, even ignorance and disappointments to more realistic, pragmatic and simultaneously more tough approaches. The majority of experts agree that the key points and problems of the common Russia-EU agenda remain the same: the energy sphere, common neighborhood and European security. Though the problems of perception and self-perception remain a substantial element of the dialogue –or rather its deficit- the pressure of the globalizing economy, finance and security, in particular in the period of the crisis, puts the EU and Russia in front of a choice, formulated by Joschka Fisher as ‘confrontation or difficult partnership’.

La operación de seducción de Moscú

Superadas las tensiones causadas por la caída del imperio soviético y habiendo dejado atrás los acontecimientos del 11 de septiembre, el momento parece propicio para el acercamiento entre Europa y Rusia. Este acercamiento, que se ve favorecido por el relativo desinterés de Estados Unidos y la ausencia de puntos de conflicto significativos, se viene produciendo con pragmatismo y, a menudo, por iniciativa del Kremlin.
