6/5 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 Essay and Reflection pages for the first publications from our guest contributors, Bryan Rosenthal and Evan Sieradzki. Bryan provides pinpoint analysis on the impact of Western sanctions against Russia over the conflict in eastern Ukraine, while Evan explores how Russian President Vladimir Putin’s pride is in fact a major driver of Russian foreign policy. See our Media page as well for a neat (and fake) video of the Ukraine conflict coming to Chicago. 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. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
