Dear Readers,

Enjoy our latest installation of the Weekly Roundup, a collection of must-read articles on U.S.-Russian relations and the broader Eurasia region compiled at The Elicitor every Friday. Read our most recent essay publication written by Co-Founder Peter J. Marzalik on the implications of Montenegro’s new membership in NATO. Also, check out our media page for an amusing video of a Russian military general showcasing broken materiel to Putin. We encourage you to subscribe to the Weekly Roundup newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter.
