« back to classes page
The United States and Russia have had a deep relationship since the time of the American Revolution assuring deliveries of vital military supplies to the colonists/rebels. The ties deepened during the ensuing 19th century and extended through a wartime alliance during World War II. The Cold War ended that historical relationship and for the next 50 years the United States and the Soviet Union were adversaries. With the fall of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact, there were some who hoped that U.S.-Russian relations could be normalized. Obstacles prevented that and today Russia is identified as a strategic adversary seeking to overturn the U.S. led global world order. How did we get here?  What is the unknown history? What can and should be done now?
