Current Issues in U.S.-Russian Relations This TF will get an overview of world regions and problems on which U.S.-Russian relations currently are focused and will provide an opportunity to study a major question as your writing project. You also will learn a great deal about other aspects of current U.S.-Russian relations from reading and participating in discussion of other studentsí papers. A useful method of preparation for the TF is to examine the Report from Prof. Ellisonís 2006 Task Force; it can be seen in the JSIS Student Services Office.
