- IFS Info 
In the period since 1992 Russia has become a major peacekeeper, and contributed with both traditional inter-position and coercive peace support in a number of conflicts outside its borders. Still Russian peacekeeping has been understudied compared to peacekeeping activities of other states. In this study Dov Lynch explores Russian peacekeeping operations. He asks what the Russian operations look like and how the operations have evolved over the last decade. Are they comparable to international peacekeeping operations? And what role do Russian operations play in promoting or obstructing conflict resolution in the former Soviet Union?
