Abstract: Although the Russian Federation (RF) is one of the key players in the global climate change politics, the country is rather discreet in binding itself with new international climate obligations. Often the country is criticized for its weak national climate change law and policy. To provide current context as regards the status of Russian climate change mitigation efforts, this article analyzes the RF's climate law and policy at the domestic and international levels. It does so by first investigating Russia's activities in implementing the international Climate Change regime (section two), then studying Russia's national climate law and policy (sections three and four). Finally the prospects for future action are examined (section five).
