About the Event

As president or prime minister, Vladimir Putin has been in power in Russia since 1999 and has seen now five U.S. Presidents.

During that time, the U.S. has struggled to come up with consistent and sustainable foreign policy towards Russia, all while Russia has become increasingly ambitious and adversarial. Is the Biden administration doomed to repeat the same mistakes, or will it learn from the past and be better equipped to face the challenges that Russia poses on the global stage?

Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia for a discussion about U.S. policy towards Russia since Putin first rose to power over twenty years ago, and whether U.S. foreign policy has evolved or largely followed similar patterns during the U.S. presidential administrations of Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump, and now Biden.
