Surname 1 Name: Instructor: Course: Date: International Russian Relations in the Post-Cold War Era The history of the United States- Russian international relations is extensive and multidimensional accounting for over ten centuries. The two nations cooperated with each other and entered into long-term partnerships and friendships with phases of close associations and oppositions. However, during the Cold War period and the Post-Cold War era, the US- Russia bilateral organization and relationship was affected significantly. In the cold war era, these two nations fought over worldwide dominance to strategize an anticipated global order. This competition led to broken relations, which created threats of nuclear war and later on, the falling apart of the Soviet Union at the end of Cold War hence, creating the new US- Russia relation in the post-cold war era.

Presence of nuclear artilleries and a continued research on the weapons placed the two nations at high alerts. However, in 1991, the committee members of Foreign Relations in the United States senate wrote an article on what nuclear arms demobilization and weapon control meant for the US-Russian relations. The article stated the bilateral relations with Russia and later on led to the evolution of US policies regarding major arms in response to wars on terror. Despite the foreign relations between Russia and the US, there exist barriers that have led to ineffective relationships between the two nations. The US began by treating Russia as a defeated enemy during the post-cold war era; however, Russia did not view itself as defeated just because the US had won the battle. Due to the perceptions that the US was on the top, they did not make any deals or any coalitions with Russia as their strategic partner throughout the Bush and Clinton administrations.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
