Student: Diana Zinkovich

Supervisor: Dmitry Novikov

Faculty: Faculty of World Economy and International Affairs

Educational Programme: Double degree programme in International Relations of the NRU HSE and the University of London (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2021

The research paper examines the evolution of the Russian approach towards the US-China trade war. The analysis of the existing literature on the topic shows that there is no strongly pronounced consensus on how to treat this war and whether benefits retrieved from it outweigh the losses. The paper investigates the statements of the politicians and experts to check how the attitude to the war was changing from 2018 to the present days. The research concludes that during all three years of the economic confrontation between the US and China, Russia has always been neutral and avoided taking either side of the conflict. Apart from neutrality, it was found that Russia criticises the trade war as a phenomenon since it leads to devastating consequences for the global economy and international trade. Generally, the approach to the trade war remains the same with minor differences that will be discussed in the paper.
