Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States and Russia have been exchanging humanitarian aid shipments, demonstrating the readiness of the two countries to temporarily put their political differences aside and come to the other’s rescue. That being said, these episodes have had little effect on bilateral relations, which have been going through trying times in recent years. The crisis of confidence between the two countries is further aggravated by a number of problems that have built up over the past several years. This report attempts to present a picture of how bilateral relations between Russia and the United States may develop over the next ten years. The first section describes the context of these bilateral relations, specifically, how the general approaches of the two countries to foreign policy, as well as to certain domestic issues, will affect their interaction as a whole. The second section discusses specific areas of interaction, primarily those related to international security, in greater detail.
