This chapter examines connections between economic issues and the various challenges to, and conundrums of, Europeanisation associated with the European Union's (EU) relations with Eastern neighbours. It focuses on trade between EU member states and Russia, which had been growing steadily, with particularly rapid expansion after the EU's eastward enlargement in 2004. The chapter outlines the main developments in trade between the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Russia after EU accession. It also focuses on bilateral instruments for trade and economic cooperation with Russia. The chapter discusses the possible relevance of new 'strategic' visions for economic development that emerged after the Eurozone crisis. It explains the important influence of alternative internal perspectives on economic and business relations on Russia. There can be no doubt that alternative political party perspectives have been an important determinant of incumbent Czech, Hungarian and Slovak governments' inclination to cultivate economic links with Russia.
