Part of Transatlantic Security

Russia

The United States and Europe face an assertive, unpredictable, and authoritarian Russia—trends that Moscow’s economic stagnation and insecurity at home will only amplify. Russia’s attacks on democratic institutions in both Europe and the United States, its actions to exacerbate polarization within and between democratic states, and its efforts to enhance influence in key regions like the Middle East undermine Western global leadership. The Transatlantic Security Program analyzes Russian domestic and foreign policy to equip policymakers with insights they need to understand and respond to the Russia challenge. We identify areas where the United States and Europe can work with Russia as well as ways to strengthen policies designed to deter and counter Russia’s destabilizing behavior.
