“Is a Constructive Agenda
With Russia Possible?”

with Professor Anna Vassilieva

Professor of Russian Studies and Director of the Monterey Initiative in Russian Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, California.

The sponsor for Professor Vassilieva
is Program Committee member Joe Leadem.

Crucial issues swirling around U.S. security include China, Islamic terrorism, and cyber threats, to name just three. But where is Russia in this? For better or worse, does any U.S. security strategy have to include it? The answer is a resounding “yes”!
WACSC is privileged to present Professor Anna Vassilieva to unpack the role that Russia plays, and will continue to play, in our security planning. First, an urgent challenge: we must see through the current distrust and media frenzy in both countries. Then onto a deep dive into what our current security environment really is. What is Russia’s? And how do they intersect? So much rides on the answers, and in Anna Vassilieva we will have both broad sweep and focused details.
