This article examines current diplomatic relations between the European Union (EU) and Russia. It argues that despite the severe strains in the relationship, cooperation between EU member states and Russia regarding containing COVID-19 can take place in the short-to-medium term. However, in the long-term, EU-Russian contestation over human rights, freedom of speech and violent clampdowns of the political opposition in Russia will outweigh these short-term gains in cooperation.
