How the United States approaches its relationship with Russia must be an important consideration when devising the U.S.’s national security strategy. The security implications for the U.S. are profound because Russia’s role in the ever-growing global environment reaches many different countries and regions of the world. This paper aims to review the U.S.’s relationship with Russia, past and present, while recognizing how Russia’s leadership, military, economic, and energy policies will play key roles in that association. Additionally, this paper will focus on the options, challenges, and threats that are present in the U.S.’s relationship with Russia, as well as provide an analysis of Russia and how the U.S. must approach this long-time adversary.
