Economic Cooperation Between Russia and the Balkan Countries

Russia’s presence is still welcome in the Balkans. Interestingly, it is largely stimulated by the anti-Russia information campaign, initiated by the West in 2014.
Attempts to portray Russia as a “monster” which tries to discredit integration efforts of the West paradoxically led to raising the status of Russia in the eyes of the Balkan public to that of a “global power”.
