Cold War Redux?

Dr. Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia

The relationship between Russia and the United States is complex.  The United States relies on Russia as a partner in fighting extremism, in dealing with Iran, and even in eliminating the chemical weapons stockpiles of Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad.  But Russia has its own agenda internationally, and increasingly Russian President Vladimir Putin is asserting Russian interest in regions from Crimea to Syria with military force.

Join Dr. Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, for a candid conversation about the reality of Russian-American relations, the choices facing U.S. policy makers, and the challenges that will greet the next American president.
