The Kosovo Factor in Russia's Foreign Policy
The Kosovo crisis has influenced Russia’s ideas on its relations with the outside world in a more fundamental way than any other event during the ‘90s. The article explores Russia’s policies during the conflict itself, its attitudes towards military security and the use of force after the NATO campaign. It also examines its search for a future agenda since the beginning of the UN administration of the province and the completion of the post-Yeltsin succession.
