U.S. Policy Toward Russia

Overview

 

Upon election in 2008, the Obama administration had pledged to “hit the reset button” with Russia, and to intitiate negotiations on matters of the utmost importance to both nations. Relations between the United States and Russia were more strained than at any time since the collapse of the Soviet Union. From 2008-2009, with support from Carnegie Corporation, the Academy conducted a major reexamination of U.S. foreign policy toward Russia. The goal was to develop a comprehensive, coherent, and effective policy on U.S.-Russian relations for consideration by the new U.S. administration, Congress, and the media.
