WASHINGTON, D.C., February 28, 2023 – As the Russia-Ukraine war rages on, we would like to remind readers about the MEMRI Russian Media Studies Project (RMSP). The project publishes up-to-the-minute translations and analyses of statements by Russian political and military officials and leading figures from Russian media and think tanks. Register today for a free subscription to the MEMRI RMSP to follow the latest developments in Russia and Ukraine.
The MEMRI RMSP, launched in 2016, publishes translations from Russian into English and other languages as well as original analysis, in addition to translations of Russia-related media content from Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, Urdu, and Pashto – all with the aim of informing governments, legislatures, media, academia, and the public at large.
Over the last seven years, the MEMRI RMSP has monitored, 24/7, topics including Russia's foreign and domestic policy: Russia-U.S. relations, anti-U.S. indoctrination, cyber war, the rising U.S.-Russia military tensions, Russia-China relations, Russia-Turkey relations, Russia-Iran relations, Russia-NATO relations, the Russia-U.S.-NATO clash over Ukraine, Russia's intervention in Syria, Russia's geopolitical interests, Russia's influence in Europe and its potential allies, Russia's return to the developing world including Latin America, Russia's vision of the post-coronavirus world, Russia's rivalry with the U.S. in the former Soviet republics and in the Arctic, and energy and arms shipments as force multipliers of Russian diplomacy.
On the Russian domestic front, MEMRI has reported regularly on the regime's perception of itself and its domestic critics' perception of it; on the state of the Russian economy; and on the nature of the domestic opposition and the regime's efforts to throttle it.
