First it was military aggression in Ukraine and Crimea, then military intervention in Syria to support President Assad, and now cyber interference in an American election. In these ways and others, Russia actively asserts its power and influence on world events.  What does President Putin expect to gain by aggressively pushing a Russian nationalist agenda? Does a strong NATO matter? What is the probable future for democratic freedoms and security in other newly independent republics of the former Soviet Union? What policies would be best in dealing with Russia?

Honorable Kenneth Yalowitz is a Woodrow Wilson Fellow visiting California Baptist University in March. He served as a U.S. Foreign Service Officer for 36 years and was ambassador to Belarus from 1994-1997 and Georgia from 1998-2001. He also served in Moscow (two tours), The Hague and the US Mission to NATO in Brussels.  He received the Ambassador Robert Frasure award for peacemaking and conflict prevention in 2000 for his work preventing spillover of the Chechen war into Georgia. He has taught at Georgetown, Stanford, and Washington & Lee Universities. In 2009, he was elected to the American Academy of Diplomacy and is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
