Resistive Economy is one of the vital and important concepts in Iran which has been considers as a golden economic key under resitrictions and economic sanctions to improve chiefly the economic infrastructures. Investigation of the resistive economic patterns in the world can help an economy to imply this kind of economy, efficiently. Hence, the main purpose of this paper is to theoretically investigate the concept and characters of the Russian Resistive Economy and compare it to the resistive economy in Iran as well. The Russian Resistive Economy (RRE) has been introduced to lower the negative effects of the West 2014-sanctions against Russia. The findings of this study express some similarities and dissimilarities between the resistive economy in Iran and Russia. Both of them consider the resistive economy as a good way to enhance the local economy. The main differences are the purpose of using this economy and also the combination of the resistive economy with the Islamic economic principles in Iran.
