Russia's new Economic Security Strategy adopted in May 2017, conceived as a response to the West, highlighted the country’s weaknesses and strategic tensions over how to approach the global economy.

The Strategy was conceived in response to the renewal of Western sanctions. But the Strategy also highlighted Russia’s persistently sluggish growth since the 2008 global financial crisis, and the ‘exhaustion of the resource export model’. In the process, it became a critique of Russia’s own political economy.
