In response to the release of the “Russian oligarchs report” on January 29, 2018, the National Security Institute hosted a panel to discuss the implications of the report for U.S.-Russia relations. Does the report serve as a roadmap for coming sanctions?  What does the United States expect to achieve by targeting Russia’s financial elite? NSI Policy Director John Lipsey explored these questions with an experienced group of panelists:

Daniel Vajdich – Nonresident Senior Fellow, Future Europe Initiative, Atlantic Council

Megan Reiss – Senior National Security Fellow, The R Street Institute; NSI Visiting Fellow

Lester Munson – Former Staff Director, Senate Foreign Relations Committee; NSI Visiting Fellow
