Webcast Recap

Russia’s and China’s America policies are shaped not only by their assessments of the United States’ current intentions and capabilities, but by the evolution of their views of the U.S. over the past two centuries. Please join us for a discussion of the history of Chinese and Russian narratives of the United States and how they inform policies in Moscow and Beijing today.

China and Russia: On Their Own Terms is a joint project of the Wilson Center’s Kennan and Kissinger Institutes. The goal of the series is to offer U.S. policymakers, analysts, and the broader public a primary source appreciation for how China and Russia see their evolving international roles in light of their histories, cultural narratives, and national myths.
