The article describes the progress in Russian theoretical thinking about the world. The author reviews the post-Soviet IR discussions and traces how they progressed from one paradigm to another in response to shifts in social issues and political agenda. The paper concludes that although realism has emerged as a prominent theoretical paradigm, Russian IR is still in process of its self-definition and remains widely open to various intellectual influences.
