Prospects for US-Russia Relations: A Perspective From Moscow

July 15, 2019, 2:30-4:00pm
1616 Rhode Island Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

Join the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) for a talk on the future of U.S.-Russian relations.

The conclusion of the Mueller investigation renewed U.S. President Donald Trump’s desire to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and to intensify U.S.-Russian dialogue in general. Both countries face numerous problems, from Venezuela to strategic stability, that require management. Is more effective management of these problems and bilateral relations as such possible? How will Russia approach relations with the U.S. leading up to the 2020 elections and beyond? Does Russia have a strategy vis-à-vis the U.S., and if so, what are its major elements? Lastly, how will the election interference issue impact U.S.-Russia relations after the publication of the Mueller report, and how is Moscow going to address it?
