The Future of Nordic-Russian Relations, Utrikespolitiska Institutet

The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) invites you to a seminar on the future of Nordic-Russian relations.

Two of the Nordic countries share borders with Russia, and the Baltic and the Barents Seas also bind us together. Historically, events in Russia have had a direct impact on stability and development in the Nordic Region. Two Nordic countries are militarily non-aligned and three are NATO members which affects their relations to Russia in different ways. Relations were impaired after the Russian aggression in Ukraine, but now three years later all parties seek for ways to improve relations in the Nordic region.

René Nyberg served as Finland’s Ambassador in Moscow 2000-2004.
