The relationship between the United States and Russia is among the most critical bilateral relationships in the world, with implications well beyond the two states themselves. Today, Russia’s foreign policy is increasingly assertive, the Russian economy is facing tremendous strain, and Russia’s political space is constantly shifting. In this dynamic environment, the imperative to understand Russian interests, actions, and, no less importantly, its people, is as great as it has ever been. The CSIS program of research and activities related to Russia seeks to study, educate, and connect specialists on Russia and specialists in Russia, to inform policymaking around the world. It is led by the Russia and Eurasia Program.
