La colaboración del CESE con las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en Rusia se rige por los cinco principios rectores de las relaciones entre la UE y Rusia acordadas entre los ministros de Asuntos Exteriores de la UE y la alta representante de la Unión para Asuntos Exteriores y Política de Seguridad. Uno de estos principios rectores es el «apoyo a los contactos interpersonales».

El diálogo y el intercambio de experiencias entre los representantes de la sociedad civil de la UE y de Rusia contribuyen de forma significativa a la ejecución continua de la Asociación Estratégica UE-Rusia. El CESE ha adoptado un enfoque dual en sus relaciones con la sociedad civil rusa con el fin de colaborar con la mayor variedad posible de representantes de la sociedad civil. Por un lado, mantiene relaciones con la Cámara Cívica de la Federación de Rusia, su equivalente oficial en Rusia, y organiza, entre otras cosas, seminarios conjuntos anuales sobre cuestiones de interés para la sociedad civil de ambas partes. El otro socio del CESE es el Foro de la Sociedad Civil UE-Rusia, que reúne a otro conjunto de organizaciones de la sociedad civil.

El Comité de Seguimiento UE-Rusia es un órgano interno del CESE, que actúa como grupo director y se encarga de desarrollar y mantener relaciones y organizar reuniones y seminarios conjuntos con la sociedad civil en Rusia.
