Climate change as one of the world's global challenges is one of the most urgent issues in the international agenda. Russia is the fourth largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world and is considered to be an influential actor when it comes to international climate cooperation. In our research we will focus on the characteristics and prospects of Russia's participation in the international climate regulation. The present study seeks to scrutinize the reasons Russia engaged in the Paris Agreement, as well as the prospective outcomes of Russia's involvement in the climate action in terms of its climate and energy policies. With this aim in mind, discourse analysis will be employed to examine the rhetoric of the State officials and Russia's legal documents consearning climate policy.
