This is the day everything started: A year ago we began to provide you, our expert audience, with a sophisticated insight and analysis on Russian foreign policy and Russia-U.S. relations available.

Thank you for your support and your loyalty this year. To show our thanks, here’s a special video we made for you.

Have a look!
