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. CSIS's work on Russia is led by the Russia and Eurasia Program, the Europe Program, and the International Security Program.
