Some Gaps[edit]

This article does not include a reference to the most current document on Russian foreign policy published by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, titled "Concept of the Foreign Policy of the Russian Federation", as approved by President of the Russian Federation V. Putin on 12 February 2013. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.83.132.49 (talk) 18:54, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

This article could especially use more detail concerning Russia's relations with countries on its borders, including both the "near abroad" and other countries. I'm not well-versed enough to take this on, but offer just a couple of suggestions here. (1) Russia's activities and interests Transcaucasia have always been complicated, in part by playing off the interests and fears of one group against others (e.g., Armenia vs. Azerbaijan re Karabagh, minorities in Georgia (Ossetians, Abkhazi) against the Georgian government). This goes back 100 years, but continues to this day. It plays out also in oil politics, pipelines from Azerbaijan bypassing Russia, etc. (2) Russia's activities and interests in Kazakhstan and Central Asia, and (3) Belarus-Russia federation; (4) more thoroughgoing review of relations with Ukraine.

Beyond the near abroad, and into the "far abroad," especially Russia's relations (other than border disputes) with important neighbors: the Koreas, Japan, China, Iran, Turkey, and the countries of E-C Europe.--Mack2 14:21, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

Bias[edit]

Sorry, I don't know proper rules of editing articles here, but doesn't anyone else notice how biased towards Russia the article is? That is, the conflicts with Latvia/Lithuania/etc. are not explored, the human rights problems are only presented as "allegations", and the oil and gas economic pressure on other countries is left out... --Anna (anna.uwc(at)gmail.com) 17 February 2007 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 131.111.220.6 (talk) 11:18, 17 February 2007 (UTC).

No it's not biased, and human rights violations ARE only alleghations. QZX

Of course the articles will always be biased. But who will set them right?

/*Global opinion*/ is based on the data by Pew Research Center, a think tank based in Washington, D.C. It would be the same as to post global opinion charts on the US based on data provided by RT(Russia Today).

I actually signed in to comment how blatantly anti-Russian this article and its author[s] are. Anyone who argues that it's pro-Russia is either so viscerally anti-Russian that any analysis falling short of their own antipathy comes in for criticism; or is invidiously insulting the general reader's intelligence. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 8.26.160.102 (talk) 11:04, 4 July 2017 (UTC)

Territorial evolution of Russia[edit]

Some text was removed from this page and placed (haphazardly) in a new article, Territorial evolution of Russia. Was there a reason for this? Should the be merged back together? -Harmil 20:22, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Putin is still president[edit]

Until may 7th, so the scuttling of sanctions on iran are the act of putin —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.148.66.156 (talk) 14:45, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Agreed, Putin section is not well written. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.164.119.33 (talk) 21:01, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

Article needs to be reorganized[edit]

The article is quite messy as it currently reads. In particular, the very long section about foreign relations during Putin's presidency seems to be one big unstructered pile of piecemeal bits of information. Basically, I feel that the article is in serious need of a profound re-write. __meco (talk) 13:49, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Proposed WikiProject - Bilateral relations[edit]

There is now a upstart WikiProject to establish a concensus about WP's International bilateral relations articles, including "X-Y (country) relations" articles, at Wikipedia:Centralized discussion/Bilateral international relations. Interested parties should add their names at Wikipedia:WikiProject International relations/Bilateral relations task force if they wish to play a part in the discussions or have an Interest in this going forward. Thank you for your attention. CaribDigita (talk) 23:35, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Third World War[edit]

http://www.amic.ru/news/191477/

Is this Third World War talk about Russia fighting China and NATO at the same time notable enough to include? Does it really drive Russian foreign policy or defense planning? Hcobb (talk) 14:33, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
