While resets in US-Russian relations have come and gone under the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations, no such reset has occurred under the Trump administration – despite the apparent affinity between Presidents Trump and Putin. In this talk, Col. Robert Hamilton will review the state of relations between the two powers and the two presidents in a larger geopolitical perspective.
