Ukrainians took to the streets in in November 2013. As the movement later known as the Euromaidan, or “Euro Square,” pulled western Ukraine closer to its European neighbors, another powerful force threatened to tear away the country’s eastern half: Russia. Putin’s pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putin’s Russia isn’t afraid to take an aggressive stance against Europeanization in Ukraine, what does that mean for the rest of Russia’s neighbors? Full episode from the Great Decisions PBS series. http://www.greatdecisionsonpbs.com/ Narrated by Academy Award nominated actor David Strathairn and produced by the Foreign Policy Association, each half-hour episode of the Great Decisions documentary series tackles a different challenge facing America today.

Experts review Russia’s strategic objectives and foreign policy with Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the United States. SPEAKERS Jennifer M. Harris Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations James Nixey Head, Russia and Eurasia Programme, Chatham House Alina Polyakova Director of Research, Europe and Eurasia, Atlantic Council
In recent years, Russia's foreign policy has become considerably more asserting, posing a challenge to the United States and its Western allies. In his presentation, Igor Zevelev, a fellow at the Kennan Institute and a former visiting fellow at CSIS, will explore what is driving this shift from the Russian side. He will outline the ways in which Russian foreign policy doctrine today stems primarily from domestic ideas about Russian identity and the reasons why the impact of such thinking has become such a driving force in the past four years.
RUSI Research Fellow Sarah Lain predicts that Russia's foreign policy will continue to be a major story in 2017, especially their relationship with the US in the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump which may have a impact on the current sanctions regime.
As the EU extends sanctions against Russia for at least another six months, we look at Moscow's fraught relationship with the West amid its ongoing involvement in Syria and Ukraine. Despite ongoing differences over Ukraine, NATO and Russia appear to have common interests in Syria and the battle against ISIL. Cooperation or confrontation? That's the big question facing European and American diplomats as Russian foreign policy sparks often contradictory reactions. Wang Yiwei from Renmin University in China, Dmitry Babich from Sputnik International news agency, and former US representative to NATO Kurt Volker join us for some in-depth discussion on the issue.

Stanley and Arlene Ginsburg Family Foundation Lecture Series April 21, 2015 FPRI founder Robert Strausz-Hupé once observed that “world history is not a succession of happy endings.” If we needed a reminder, the Russian invasion of Ukraine has provided it.

This video goes back to a Russian TV show in 2011, when Putin's foreign policy wasn't quite as clear to the Russian public as it is today. Nevertheless, he makes his stance known on US foreign policy, and notably, his feelings toward Mr McCain.

The current downturn in Russia’s relationship with the West has prompted Russian officials and scholars to openly call for "new rules” for global politics. Western sanctions on Russia for its actions in Ukraine have prompted the Kremlin’s counter-sanctions and Moscow's public “pivot to the Asia-Pacific,” designed to reinforce the notion that Russia is a global power and an important player in a multipolar world order. How sustainable is Russia’s international revisionism and what are the implications for its relationship with the West? Is current Russian foreign policy orientation the result of the leadership of President Vladimir Putin and his inner circle, or has Russia made a decisive break from the West? How important are factors like social status and prestige in Russia’s current ...
This lecture on "The True Ambitions of Russian Foreign Policy Today" was given on August 8, 2017 by Brandon J. Weichert. This event was sponsored by the Kosciuszko Chair of Polish Studies and the Center for Intermarium Studies. ------ About the lecture Russian foreign policy objectives are poorly understood today. This is because most analysts look at Russia through Western eyes. But, Russia is not only Moscow. Russia is Siberia and the Far East also. This lecture will provide a three-dimensional view of Russia, it will contextualize Russian actions over the past decade beyond the headlines, and it will illustrate why U.S. foreign policy toward Russia is misguided (and how to correct the strategic misperceptions). About the speaker Brandon J. Weichert is a former congressional staff...
