A New Trade Wars Era Is Coming: What Is in It for Russia?
The world returns to the era of trade wars. Protectionist measures, taken recently at the initiative of US President Donald Trump, only brought to the public space the agenda, which has been implemented by various countries for several years.

In this situation, countries have to rely on themselves, and Russia’s positions are very vulnerable. Such conclusions were made by participants in the expert discussion “World Trade Wars: What Are We to Expect?” which took place on April 12, 2018.
