A lecture by well-known Russian Americanist Maxim Suchkov will be organized at the Gorchakov Fund. Registration is open!

10 July 2018

The Alexander Gorchakov Public Diplomacy Fund invites you to attend a lecture by Russian expert in foreign affairs and Americanist Maxim Suchkov “Russian-US Relations and the US Foreign Policy under Donald Trump”, which will take place in Moscow on July 18.

Degradation of Russian-US relations coincided with a revision of the US national system and, in many aspects, has become a result of that revision. Discussions about nature and character of the current state of affairs – a new cold war or systematic confrontation – are not fading away in Russia and the US.

Acceleration of the sanction pressure, unscrupulous media campaigns, expulsion of diplomats, confrontation of interests in regional conflicts, erosion of foundations of arms control – these and other events have been accompanying relations between Moscow and Washington over the past several years causing some serious concerns about prospects of their further development.

Significant changes have been taking place simultaneously in the US. The new president is trying to transform the foreign policy course of the country without giving up, at the same time, traditional for Republican tools and practices.

Key aspects of the US foreign policy under President Trump as well as the current state and the prospects of development of the Russian-US relations after the Helsinki summit will be analyzed during the discussion.

The event is open to public.
