REGISTER TO ATTEND

Since the Ukraine crisis began in 2014, strained relations between the United States and Russia have limited the prospects of bilateral cooperation. In particular, joint efforts on nuclear arms control remain stalled and the possibility that Washington and Moscow will adopt more assertive conventional and nuclear security postures may have far-reaching consequences for global security from Europe to East Asia.

Carnegie–Tsinghua’s Tong Zhao will host a discussion with Carnegie Moscow’s Dmitri Trenin and Petr Topychkanov. Trenin will discuss how relations between Russia and the West affect diplomatic ties between Russia and China. Topychkanov will present his perspective on the possibility that Russia may consider giving nuclear weapons a more prominent role in its defense policy and how such a shift would influence relations between Russia, China, and the United States.
