The objective of this paper is to describe and explain company strategies under uncertainty. It attempts to examine more closely the interaction of research on strategic management with internationalization theory and the dimension of uncertainty. This study builds on the empirical data from a survey conducted in 2015 among 73 Swedish companies operating in Russia. The findings support several concepts of strategic management and internationalization theory, but also reveal some phenomena that would require further investigation. These include a domination of expansion strategy chosen by Swedish firms during the current escalation of uncertainty in Russia.
