Arms Control, Russia, Ukraine and the European Union


Arms Control. Russia. Ukraine. Three distinct issues that share multiple connections. In this podcast,Steven Pifer, senior fellow and director of the Brookings Arms Control Initiative, connects the dots. A former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine and career foreign service officer, Pifer calls for an additional round of strategic arms reductions between the U.S. and Russia, on top of those agreed-to under the New START treaty. He also examines Russian foreign policy and explains how Ukraine is attempting to follow a path to greater integration with Europe while facing pressure from Moscow.
