Dear friends of Carnegie Corporation of New York,

Reports about Russian interference and leadership politics continue to flood U.S. news and social media channels, inundating the public with a limited perspective on what’s at stake in this critical bilateral relationship.

Undoubtedly, these are important matters, but it’s high time that we unpack the fundamental issues (adversarial and cooperative alike) and historical underpinnings that define U.S.-Russia relations. Global stability depends on it.

Carnegie Corporation of New York is proud to present U.S.-Russia Relations: Quest for Stability, the definitive guide to U.S.-Russia relations today. This interactive multimedia tool, developed in partnership with design studio MediaStorm and producer Mike Moran, harnesses the Corporation’s unparalleled access to issue-area expertise, offering contemporary insight and analysis, historical context, and a framework for moving toward greater geopolitical stability.

We invite you to explore the site, share it with your colleagues, and join us in bringing greater understanding to the public at a time when engagement and diplomacy are critically needed.
