9/11 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. Read our most recent essay publication written by The Elicitor Guest Contributor Bryan Rosenthal who discusses the developing opportunities and limitations for U.S.-Russian cooperation in the Middle East. Also, check out our media page for a video on the “Tear of Grief” monument, a gift presented by the Russian Federation to the United States following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We appreciate the outpouring of support since the launch and encourage you to subscribe to the Weekly Roundup newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.
