What does the new Biden administration in Washington mean for one of our nation’s oldest and most contentious relationships? From the days of Seward’s Folly in the 1860s to the much-scrutinized relations between Vladimir Putin and former President Trump, Russia has consistently presented both a mystery and a challenge to the United States. In this session, a veteran Russia-watcher will assess the current relationship between the two countries.
