5/29 Weekly Roundup

Dear Readers,

Enjoy our latest installation of the Weekly Roundup, a collection of must-read articles on U.S.-Russian relations compiled at The Elicitor every Friday. Also, check out our Essays page for our recent publication on the potential Greece entry into the new BRICS development bank as well as the Media page for a video of the debatably ironic Russia performance at the Eurovision singing competition. 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!
