Sodelovanje EESO z organizacijami civilne družbe v Rusiji temelji na petih vodilnih načelih za odnose med EU in Rusijo, ki so jih sprejeli ministri EU za zunanje zadeve in visoka predstavnica Unije za zunanje zadeve in varnostno politiko. Eno od teh vodilnih načel je „podpiranje medosebnih stikov“.
Dialog in izmenjava izkušenj med predstavniki civilne družbe iz EU in Rusije bistveno prispevata k nadaljnjemu izvajanju strateškega partnerstva med EU in Rusijo. EESO je sprejel dvojni pristop k odnosom z rusko civilno družbo, da bi sodeloval s čim širšim razponom predstavnikov civilne družbe. Na eni strani vzdržuje odnose z državljansko zbornico Ruske federacije, svojo uradno rusko partnerico, in med drugim organizira skupne letne seminarje o temah, zanimivih za civilno družbo na obeh straneh. Drugi partner EESO je forum civilne družbe EU-Rusija, pri katerem sodelujejo različne organizacije civilne družbe.
Spremljevalni odbor EU-Rusija je notranji organ EESO, ki deluje kot usmerjevalna skupina in je odgovoren za razvoj in vzdrževanje odnosov ter organizacijo sestankov in skupnih seminarjev s civilno družbo v Rusiji.
