Putin shaking hands with Trump and Biden

Russia and the U.S., From Trump to Biden

Lecture by Dr. Angela Stent
Mar 26, 2021, 10–11 AM
Free and open to the public

Despite Russia’s hacking of the U.S. 2016 presidential election, its ongoing war in Ukraine after illegally annexing Crimea, and its persecution of journalists and oppositionists, Donald Trump pursued a seemingly pro-Putin policy. He favored Putin’s denial of the election meddling in opposition to the assertions of all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies. Why? And, now—in the face of the arrest and imprisonment of Putin’s fiercest critic, Alexei Navalny—what Russia policy should the Biden administration pursue?
