About:Russia is nowadays among top 10 countries worst hit by the coronavirus pandemic. Prices of oil and gas, whose sales represent a bulk of revenues for Russia, are plummeting. Plans to modify the Russian Constitution (as well as the Moscow Victory Day parade) had to be postponed. Undoubtedly, all of this is already having a profound impact not only on the domestic situation within Russia, but also on the international situation, where Russia wants to play a leading global role. What should we expect to happen in Russia both in political and economic terms? What could be the scenarios of domestic development within Russia? Will Russia be now more willing to play a constructive role at the global level? What might be the Russia´s place among global players like the US, EU or China?
