My research focuses on the dynamic interrelation between national identity and foreign policy in Russia after the Cold War. In particular, how foreign policy crises have been used by Russian elites to fundamentally reconstruct national identity and subsequently revise foreign policy. Here I pay special analytical attention to how Russian foreign political decision-makers’ understandings of ‘modern warfare’ and ‘disinformation’ have changed after, respectively, the Kosovo and Ukraine crisis.
