On November 6, at 16:30, the Valdai Club conference hall will host debates on the midterm Congress elections taking place the same day.
The US-Russian relations are at a record low since the Cold War. The upcoming midterms can hardly change the situation for the better. But it depends on the winner, who will be decided on the first Tuesday of November, whether bipartisan consensus on containing Russia will strengthen and if new economic sanctions can be avoided.
