On September 7, 2018, at 11:00, the Valdai Club hosted an expert discussion on the current state of the US-Russian relations.

Although the Donald Trump-Vladimir Putin summit in Helsinki was a landmark in bilateral relations, it did not break the general line of Washington towards Moscow. Sanctions and political pressure are increasing. In spite of planned high-level contacts there is a great risk that they will bring the opposite results.

What are the prospects of the Russian-American relations? Is it worth waiting for “warming” after the November midterm elections to the US Congress? How prominent are the issues of strategic stability and security on the Moscow-Washington agenda? How can the situation around New START be resolved? These and many other issues were addressed by the expert discussion participants.

Speakers:

  • Robert Legvold, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Columbia University, Director of the Euro-Atlantic Security Initiative;

  • Valery Garbuzov, Director of the Institute of the USA and Canada of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
