On October 28, 2016, Head of IE RAS Department of Social and Political Studies Dr. V.Y. Schveytzer took part in the discussion on Russian influence on European countries and their political parties in «Pravo golosa» TV show on TVC channel.
V.Y. Schveytzer focused on the negative effect for Europe and the world of the growing separatist and nationalist trends, undermining the party and political system of Europe. In his opinion, the subject of Russia is a secondary matter in the internal political struggle in the Western Europe, while it is primary in the foreign policy sphere. And Russia still cannot produce any real influence on any political party in Europe.
