L'impegno del CESE con le organizzazioni della società civile in Russia è disciplinato dai cinque principi guida per le relazioni tra l'UE e la Russia concordati dai ministri degli Affari esteri dell'UE e dall'Alta rappresentante dell'Unione per gli affari esteri e la politica di sicurezza. Uno di tali principi guida è il sostegno ai contatti interpersonali.

Il dialogo e lo scambio di esperienze tra i rappresentanti della società civile dell'UE e della Russia contribuiscono in maniera significativa alla costante attuazione del partenariato strategico UE-Russia. Il CESE ha adottato un approccio duplice alle relazioni con la società civile russa, allo scopo di dialogare con un ventaglio più ampio possibile di rappresentanti della società civile. Da un lato mantiene relazioni con la Camera civica della Federazione russa, la sua controparte ufficiale, e organizza, tra l'altro, seminari congiunti annuali su argomenti che interessano la società civile di entrambe le parti. Dall'altro lato, il CESE ha un ulteriore partner nel forum della società civile UE-Russia, che riunisce un gruppo diverso di organizzazioni della società civile.

Il comitato di monitoraggio UE-Russia è un organismo interno del CESE che funge da gruppo direttivo ed è responsabile di sviluppare e mantenere relazioni nonché organizzare riunioni e seminari congiunti con la società civile in Russia.
