Given the ongoing Ukrainian invasion by Russia it is difficult to write a synopsis of the relationship of Russia and the U.S. relations. Other than the ongoing Ukrainian conflict Russia and the U.S have other areas of conflict and yet some possible areas of mutual interest. Arms control, Russian interference in U.S. elections and support of cyberattacks, the fate of opposition politicians in Russia, all continue to be concerning. With the breakdown in relationships between Russia and the U.S. how will the administration in Washington approach these issues?
