Watch: Chair in US-Russia Relations Breaks Down Whether Sanctions on Russia are Working

Share this post:

In February, the John W. Kluge Center brought together experts on US-Russia relations to discuss the efficacy of the ongoing sanctions on Russia.

Jim Goldgeier, the most recent Library of Congress Chair in US-Russia Relations, started off the talk by explaining the significance of the topic. “Given the role of Congress in this, and given that a lot of the discussion has been about the imposition of the sanctions, or the ability to maintain the sanctions, I thought it important to make sure we got into a conversation about how to assess their impact,” he said.

Goldgeier moderated a panel with Peter Herrell and Andrea Kendall-Taylor from the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), and Andrew S. Weiss from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
