Description

Russian actions are becoming increasingly important to policymakers, strategists, and military leaders. Some leaders have gone as far as saying that Russia is the only existential threat to the United States—mostly due to its nuclear arsenal. Russia’s actions over the past few years have shown that the United States needs to devote greater attention to Russia, its intentions, and its leaders. This monograph is one small—but important— step in that direction.
In conducting research, the research team confirmed the United States has implemented a wide range of actions to counter Russia’s actions. Research also brought to light questions whether those actions are properly focused, particularly as it pertains to deterrence, as well as against a threat not entirely like that faced during the Cold War. This monograph seeks to flesh out the answer to these and other questions by exploring Russia’s intentions.
