Engaging with Russia

The Next Phase

By Roderic Lyne, Strobe Talbott, and Koji Watanabe

As the G-8 countries prepare for their 2006 meeting in St. Petersburg—chaired by President Vladimir Putin—this study examines the state of relations with, and performance of, the Russian president. The three authors—a former British and a former Japanese ambassador to Moscow and a former U.S. deputy secretary of state—analyze the challenges Russia faces and its performance in reaching democratic and market goals. They also make recommendations for helping Russia meet these goals.
