In recent years, Russia has intensified its economic, political and sociocultural contacts with Germany and with the European Union as a whole. The Laboratory for Political Research at the State University/Higher School of Economics has analyzed the image of Germany and the European Union as portrayed by the Russian media and Russian political elite.
We have posed the following questions: – What is Germany’s place in the public consciousness, as shaped by the media? – How does the Russian press present Germany to its readers? – How do the Russian media correlate the image of Germany with ideas about the EU? – What does the Russian political elite think about the European Union?
