In this crossover podcast with the co-hosts of “Russian Roulette” Olga Oliker and Jeff Mankoff we discuss China-Russia Relations and the broader trilateral dynamic between the U.S., China, and Russia. We discuss these bilateral relationships from the perspective of each country and its foreign policy visions, agendas, and strategies. We discuss how these various factors and goals might change under the new administration in Washington. We touch upon specific issue areas including principles of sovereignty and nonintervention, developments in Central Asia, and leadership similarities between Russia and China.
Olga Oliker is a senior adviser and director of the Russia and Eurasia Program at CSIS while Jeffrey Mankoff is deputy director and senior fellow also with the CSIS Russia and Eurasia Program.
