The Political Risk in Russian Regions


  • Moegel, Nicola A.



This paper shows the political investment risk in the Russian regions. The political risk has been determined by an index system. The value of each of the 19 indices is fixed individually for all 89 Russian regions. As a result all indices are classified and rated (Euclidean score).The result features six regions with a favourable political climate and twelve regions with a relatively favourable political climate. Most of them are found in the western part of the country. The political climate of 67 Russian regions varies between undetermined and rather unstable. This result is not surprising. Two regions, both border regions, have an unfavourable political climate, one region, a border region, too, is very unstable and the political climate in the Chechen Republic is menacing.
