Russia Direct is an international analytical media outlet about Russian foreign policy and its current relations with key international actors, the U.S. in particular. Founded in 2013, it provides the kind of nuanced understanding required by those with a deep involvement and interest in international relations. Long-term, the goal of the project is to improve multilateral relations at the interpersonal, inter-agency and intergovernmental levels. At Russia Direct, we hope that with our help, monologues will convert into full-fledged dialogue between Russia and other countries.

Also it organises the events for business community, representatives of governmental sector and experts where they can gather together to discuss the different topics relevant for their spheres of professional activity.
