Warming Between Russia And Europe


Relations between Russia and the newly expanded European Union look set to improve after President Vladimir Putin hosts EU officials in Moscow on May 21. The two sides are expected to sign a treaty that will pave the way for Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization.

In return for Brussels softening its position, Russia may soon meet a key EU demand by signing the Kyoto Protocol on environmental emissions. EDITED BY Edited by Rose Brady
