From Europe and Poland's point of view, one of the most important recent developments in international politics was the re-orientation of Russia's foreign policy. This paper aims to answer three important questions relating to this issue:

4. When and why did the "pro-Western turn" in the Russian Federation's policy take place?
5. Has it been profitable for Russia?
6. What goals will the Russian policy pursue in the future?
