Economic Relations Between Russia and EU: Situation, factor and Measures

Zhaozhen An


Economic relations are important parts of the relations between Russia and the European Union(EU), which is of great strategic importance. The Ukrainian crisis of 2014 brought new uncertainty to Europe, and relations between Russia and EU suffered. Due to the escalation of EU sanctions against Russia recently, Russia-EU relations have once again become deadlocked. But Within the framework of the current European Union, opinions on the development of relations with Russia are not absolutely uniform. This article deeply analyzes the factors of geo-security, the factors of energy cooperation and the factors of the United States affecting economic relations in response to the current needs for the development of relations between Russia and the European Union.
