Like all UN member states, Russia declared its commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a full-scale invasion of the territory of a sovereign state, Ukraine, accompanied by the shelling of peaceful cities. The Russian state's military aggression and repressive actions against its population contradict the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, although officials continue to declare their commitment to achieving the SDGs.
The civil society Coalition for Sustainable Development of Russia (CSDR) has conducted an analysis of the implementation of the SDGs in Russia since February 2022, since the situation in the country changed dramatically due to the outbreak of aggression against Ukraine. In this report, 20 CSDR experts have reviewed all the SDGs describing what has changed in the implementation of each of the SDGs since February 24, 2022, and how these changes have affected Russia's international cooperation.
