5/15 Weekly Roundup

Dear Readers,

Enjoy our first installation of the Weekly Roundup, a collection of must-read articles on U.S.-Russian relations published at The Elicitor every Friday. Also, check out our Media page for the rousing (and ridiculous) rendition of Michael Jackson’s “We Are The World” by NATO ministers after their meeting in Turkey. We appreciate the outpouring of support since the launch and encourage you to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter via the widgets at the bottom of the website. Expect publications from our first guest contributors to follow later next week. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
