Relaunching U.S.-Russia Dialogue on Global Challenges: The Role of the Next Generation
The breakdown in the U.S.-Russian bilateral relationship threatens to be long-lasting and volatile. Exchanges between policymakers on both sides have descended to depths not seen since the darkest days of the Cold War. Normal channels of communication between the two governments are barely functioning. Links between U.S. and Russian societies have also been negatively impacted by the crisis, making people-to-people exchanges more important than ever.
Against this difficult backdrop, Carnegie Moscow Center’s new project aims to strengthen exchanges and dialogue between leading U.S.- and Russia-based scholars and experts, and to create new communication channels between the voices of the younger generation.
The project is implemented in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy to Moscow.
If Japan’s quiet military revolution is indeed aimed against a specific threat, then that threat issues not from Russia but from China.
It was not so long ago that the United States had military bases in the region. But now much depends on whether the advantages would outweigh the inevitable losses that Central Asian countries would sustain as a result of Moscow and Beijing’s displeasure.

LIVE ONLINEThe U.S.-Soviet alliance during World War II has often been presented in Russia as a paragon of ideal relations between Moscow and Washington: co-equal, realist to the core, and successful. Even during the Cold War it was praised as an example of what the two powerful countries could do if only they were united by a compelling common cause.
The Biden administration does not want conflict in the Arctic, but the potential for tension in the region depends not only on the U.S. administration, but on the actions of Russia (and China) too.
Belarus’s weakened position has not altered its traditional interests—or Minsk’s readiness to defend them. This is becoming increasingly obvious as the Belarusian regime regains control over the situation at home.
The experience of the Soviet-American-British wartime coalition was unique and inimitable. Pulling the U.S.-Russian relationship back from the brink of confrontation to less antagonistic rivalry will only be possible in the event of major changes in the domestic politics of one or both countries.
Washington’s recognition of the Armenian genocide is far from the main problem in U.S.-Turkish relations, which have been in crisis now for several years.
Russia will likely watch how the Armenian election campaign unfolds, helping first one side and then the other. It has many levers of influence there, but not enough to assume complete control.
