Russia and Eurasia
Russia—the world's largest country in land area—is both a nuclear and energy power and thus remains one of the most important players in geopolitics. Arms control deals between Moscow and Washington plus Russia's oil and gas reserves place it at the nexus of some of the most pressing issues of our times. Although Vladimir Putin has again been sworn in as president, the protests against his election and the Kremlin continue, and questions remain about how he will handle these challenges.
