Description

Russian aggression in 2014 caught U.S. policy and strategy off-guard, forcing reactive measures and reevaluation of the U.S. approach toward Russia. Moscow employed nonlinear methodologies and operated just beneath traditional thresholds of conflict to take full advantage of U.S. and NATO policy and process limitations. In light of this strategic problem, the U.S. Army War College (USAWC), conducted a wargame that revealed four key considerations for future policy and strategy:

• The U.S. must shift from a mostly cooperative approach towards Russia to one that recognizes the competitive nature of Moscow strategy.
• U.S. policy must clearly articulate its position toward Russia, Eastern Europe, and Ukraine
• U.S. policy must challenge Russia in the competition of ideas and influence
• U.S. policy must account for the two national election cycles in 2016 and 2018
