US - Russia Relations: What Went Wrong and Is There a Way out of the Current Crisis?

Dr. Edward Lozansky, President, The American University in Moscow

The current crisis in Ukraine, which many see as a geopolitical confrontation between Russia and the United States, underscores the urgent need for developing a new foreign policy agenda that will benefit both American and Russian long-term strategic interests. As the deterioration of conditions in Ukraine continues, the world may face not only the return of the Cold War, but also even more dangerous scenarios. However, the United States and Russia have fundamentally compatible interests on issues such as terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, piracy, illegal cyber activity, drug trafficking, and climate change. It may be worth recalling that even in the most dangerous periods of the Cold War the risks of military confrontation were defused by the administrations of Eisenhower, Kennedy and Reagan.

Dr. Edward Lozansky is the founder and president of the American University in Moscow. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics & Engineering and received his Ph.D. in theoretical and mathematical physics from the Moscow Institute of Atomic Energy. In 1975, he lost his research and teaching positions for publicly criticizing Soviet foreign and domestic policies. In 1976, Dr. Lozansky immigrated to the United States, where he taught at the University of Rochester and at American University in Washington, D.C. Dr. Lozansky is the author of 13 books and over 400 articles in the areas of science and humanities published in leading American and Russian journals and newspapers.
