Objective

On March 18th, Vladimir Putin will renew his term as president of Russia until 2024. The elections, beyond feeling the pulse of popular support for the Russian leader, will be a mere formality. However, there are serious uncertainties about the changes that the Kremlin can introduce in domestic politics and in the Russian foreign agenda and, with them, its impact on NATO, the EU and the disputed Eastern and Southern Neighbourhoods.
