... which, in turn, does not necessarily mean an equally wide gap in the fundamental values of the Russian and American people. This lack of trust and a unified vision for the development of international relations in the near future means that a new “reset” of U.S.–Russia relations is practically impossible, no matter who comes to the White House in January 2017 and who is elected President of the Russian Federation in 2018.

The US-Russia Reset Four Years On: State and Challenges

In 2013 the state of, and prospects, for US-Russian cooperation in arms control and security look more dubious than at any point since the end of the Cold War a quarter century ago. The main reasons are not only the complexity of particular problems that have to addressed, but rather the general ...

The US-Russia Reset in Obama's Second Term: A View from Moscow

... coinciding priorities in the two countries’ agendas, whereas the logic pointing to the competitive positioning of Russia and the USA seems stronger than any signs of an emerging joint strategy and tactics. It is not surprising therefore that in Russia the very notion of the ‘reset’ – whatever the motives, substance and concrete results of this undertaking have been – is basically considered a thing of the past. And the United States is not expected to engage in a ‘reset’ as it did four years ...

Washington and Moscow still hope for 'Reset 2'

... geopolitical one). There is no indication that this bad feeling will be exacerbated. The December tensions will cool down again, though they will leave an unpleasant aftertaste. Nevertheless, the situation will not develop into anything more serious. Russia and America have no agendas to match the tasks of today and of tomorrow. Washington is hoping, in essence, for “Reset 2” — a continuation of the dialogue on subjects that achieved relative success in 2009-2010.

... community. I think that what is important is that our president works more closely with the leaders of other powers, and respects the interest of other powers, but is accountable to only the American people for his or her actions. As an expert in Russia and Russia-U.S. relations, how would you assess the “reset”?

I think it started off with some positive ...
