10/9 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 Matt Fontana who argues the rich diplomatic history of the United States and Russia may serve as a foundation for improvements in bilateral relations today. Also, check out our media page for an intense Russian Ministry of Defense video of missiles firing from the Caspian Sea into Syria. 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. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
