Since concluding a memorandum of understanding in 2007, Swiss-Russian bilateral relations have improved thanks to an official cooperation framework across several areas. Switzerland mediated between Russia and Georgia during the crisis in 2008 and has been supporting human rights projects in Russia and the Caucasus.[1] Disinformation has been a Swiss concern as well, with websites being maintained to monitor disinformation.[2] From the Russian side, Switzerland, more than any other European country, is shown in a positive light in Russian media, with 43% of Russian news stories covering Switzerland having a neutral or positive viewpoint.[3]
