The Report “The EU Global Strategy: Implications for Russia”, produced by the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow) and “Egmont – The Royal Institute for International Relations” (Brussels), is dedicated to the Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy (EUGS)published in June 2016. Analyzing the EUGS’s challenges and opportunities for Russia, the authors touch upon key issues in bi-lateral relations – resilience in the shared neighbourhood, EU-EAEU compatibility, energy security. The report questions the possibility of selective engagement between Russia and the EU in the conditions of major crisis and conflict of interests. Still, it states that the general EU’s shift from value based external relations to “principled pragmatism” can create the impetus for relaunching the political dialogue with Russia.
