The United States and Russia have been drifting towards a Cold War II for some time. Now, as the White House ponders improving ties with the Kremlin, what does it mean for the future of U.S.-Russia relations? What is the true nature of the Trump-Putin relationship and can the new administration craft a complex and sustainable approach to Russia that will deter adventurism in Eurasia, bolster U.S. commitments to its European allies, and tackle U.S.-Russian competition and conflict in cyberspace?
And what does it all mean for China-Russia relations? Facing sanctions from the West after its annexation of Crimea, Moscow drifted further into the embrace of Beijing. But will the Trump presidency seek to shift the balance in the power dynamic? Russian and U.S. policy experts hosted by the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center will examine the prospects for Trump and Putin’s fundamental shift to a more positive U.S.-Russia relationship, and the implications for China.
