Konstantin Kosachev speaks at the Trialogue club meeting

24.10.2013

MOSCOW, OCTOBER 24, 2013. PIR PRESS – “Clearly, the actions that fall under the sphere of soft power do not take immediate effect; the results of action or inaction are not apparent over the course of years, but rather decades, and we can now, two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, assess these results.” – Head of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation, Konstantin Kosachev.

On October 15, 2013, the Trialogue Club international, convened its latest meeting in Moscow with the principle theme, “Foreign Policy Priorities and Soft Power in Russia.” The keynote speaker was Konstantin Kosachev, Head of the Federal Agency for the CIS, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation. 

In his presentation, the Head of Rossotrudnichestvo outlined the place of soft power in Russian foreign policy, explained the role of the federal agency in the formation and the implementation of this policy, and compared the potential of soft power among the world’s leading countries.

Konstantin Kosachev also pointed out that, in the 1990s, soft power was not given enough attention in Russia, and its current status directly reflects this fact: “Clearly, the actions that fall under the sphere of soft power do not take immediate effect; the results of action or inaction are not apparent over the course of years, but rather decades, and we can now, two decades after the collapse of the Soviet Union, assess these results."

Trialogue Club meets five times per year, with the main speech given by a leading Russian or foreign experts on issues of direct relevance to Russian foreign policy. For more information on the conditions of entry into the club, please consult our website.
