This book analyzes Russia’s relations with Europe, primarily with the EU.
The liberal world order, established during the Cold War, when international relations were underpinned by a global balance of the institutional structure of international relations, balanced power and morality. This continued after the Cold War – in the early 1990s, there were high hopes for a new order of security and cooperation for all of Europe, including Russia.
However, the liberal world order collapsed, and one of the manifestations of this was the new conflict between Russia and Europe, which has become especially evident in recent years due to the inability of European countries. European countries – in terms of inflicting on the interests of Russia. The book reveals the process of revising Russia’s relations with Europe since 1999.
In general, the book provides a deep understanding of the nature of relations between Europe and Russia.

About the book:
“Timofey Bordachev filled the gap in the study of European security and global politics. Europe, Russia and the Liberal World Order is one of the few fascinating readings on this topic in recent years. Explore the intersection of national interests and ideology with globalist claims through the example of relations between Russia and Europe after the Cold War, as shown by the transformed essence and content of international politics in general. We recommend reading to everyone who is interested in why order collapsed so quickly after the end of the Cold War. “

“Something went wrong? This is the most frequently asked question between Russia and Europe since the Cold War. Why have luminous expectations turned into gloomy alienation? Timofey Bordachev offers a unique point of view, arguing that the political failure of the Common European House stems from the contradictions inherent in the most liberal world order. This book is a brilliant proof that the theory of international relations is not just a scientific exercise, a very important tool for applied analysis. A truly addicting read! “

“Why have Europe and Russia failed to build the cooperative relationship they have been striving for since the end of the Cold War? In this ambitious work, Timofey Bordachev cleverly draws on the theory of international relations to illuminate the practical implications of the methods, methods in Moscow and Brussels, which lead to the branching of paths. The author deepens our understanding of the post-Cold War period.
