Climate change remains a relevant political and economic issue for Russia despite the war in Ukraine and subsequent political and economic sanctions. On the international level, the country and some companies are trying to instrumentalize the topic, building a non-Western coalition on “green” issues, and promoting nuclear
energy and nature-based solutions. On the domestic level, climate action is most noticeable in climate adaptation efforts, while fossil fuels continue to play the primary role in most energy scenarios until 2050. At present,
real civil society actors play hardly any role in setting, realizing, or controlling climate measures in Russia.
