This chapter reveals that Russia is redefining its sociopolitical fabric while focusing on forging new strategic relationships with Western countries. The country has realized that rigid principles of governance and policymaking cannot help it in realizing its economic and political goals, and it is formulating liberal domestic and foreign policies to forge better relations with the West, deriving benefits for its economy and the people. The leaders want to rebuild Russia into a powerful and influential country in the global context, and to build relationships with the West based on mutual trust and benefits without any ill will or mistrust. Russia has realized that only fruitful interactions and strategic partnerships with the West can help it in fulfilling its economic and political ambitions.

Keywords:   strategic relationships, Western countries, political goals, foreign policies
