Frosty at near Cold War levels, Russia-U.S. relations are experiencing a very tense period with no immediate relief in sight. Former Russian Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov visited the Wilson Center to discuss the current status of this important relationship and how current events are exacerbating tensions that had been simmering even before Russia’s conflict with Ukraine.

Joining him for the discussion is former CNN foreign correspondent Jill Dougherty, following an introduction provided by Wilson Center President, Jane Harman.
