How have Russia’s long-term foreign policy goals been affected by the Ukraine crisis? Cristian Nitoiu writes that Russia’s actions during the crisis have been largely reactive and that the country has suffered from both isolation from the West and the perception from non-Western actors that it now operates from a position of weakness. He argues that a clear long-term strategy is required to prevent Russia from becoming a declining power on the global stage.
