16 Jun , 17:00–18:15
The Russian Economy: New Objectives and Horizons

As the result of an attempt by a group of unfriendly countries led by the United States to inflict maximum damage on Russia, our country is being subjected to unprecedented pressure, which includes so-called “diplomatic” sanctions – the expulsion of diplomats, the closure of Russian diplomatic missions, and a squeezing of Russia out of multilateral diplomatic institutions among others – objectively reducing the potential and capabilities of classical diplomacy in today’s international political realities. Subsequently, in addition to preserving traditional forms of diplomatic interaction, the need to conceptualize and develop new tools for promoting Russia’s national interests, designed to ensure the geographic and functional diversification of the nation's foreign policy course for the foreseeable future takes on special importance.
