"Despite the passage of time, Cold War patterns of thinking about Russia show no sign of weakening in America.To avoid repeating the mistakes of the past, we need to look at Russian society in a fundamentally different light.We must learn to appreciate it as a democracy that shares key similarities, as well as differences, with the West."
