Robert O. Freedman, Visiting Professor, The Johns Hopkins University

After Professor Freedman examines Putin’s track record, he lists Russia’s priorities: to restore itself as a great power, to increase business for heavy industries, and to fight against Islamic terrorism. He then discusses areas, like Libya, where Russia and the U.S. could possibly collaborate and areas, like Syria, where conflict between the two flourishes.

Prominent Question: Who is looking at the mere fact that Russia is the largest nation in the world when considering their security polices?

Key Words: Russia, Trump, Putin, Ukraine, General McMaster, Crimea, propaganda, Libya, Syria
