The present research belongs to newly evolving investigations in the sphere of Russian non-governmental organizations in China in 1990-2010s.

Nowadays the issue of Russian NGOs in China, such as Russian clubs, is becoming an urgent priority. First of all, Russian clubs play an important role in Russian community in China. Russian clubs which were initially organized mainly to provide Russians with opportunity of informal communication, today are rather large organizations dealing with cultural, social, charitable and other events. Moreover, nowadays while Russia and China are cooperating in many areas and public diplomacy is developing as well, the problem of the role which Russian clubs could play in evolving Russian-Chinese relations is said to be a matter of paramount.

Due to the fact that there is not much theoretical research conducted on the issue of Russian clubs in China, in the framework of the present study it is necessary to conduct some introductory interviews with members of Russian clubs in China. The information gained in the interviews provides an empirical basis for the present investigation.

The general purpose of the present study is to reveal the role non-governmental organizations play in Russian community in China by classifying the most important events organised by Russian clubs. Besides, the present paper also aims at identifying the influence Russian NGOs in China could have on Russian-Chinese relations on the whole.

To sum up, the findings of this study indicate the most remarkable achievements of Russian clubs in 1990-s-2010s and reveal the main problems they are facing nowadays. Moreover, I also provide some hypothesis about the future perspectives of developing Russian clubs’ activity in China.
