Russia Maritime Studies Institute

Russia has re-emerged as a major force in international affairs. Russian economic and military entities have appeared around the world, from the Arctic to Africa, from the Euro-Atlantic to the Indo-Pacific. Moscow’s global power aspirations drive Russia into the maritime domain, and Russia sees its economic future, its national security, and its ability to influence other nations as linked to the world’s oceans. Understanding these dynamics is critical to understanding the future global security environment.
