7/8 Weekly Roundup

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 reflection publication written by Co-Founder Peter J. Marzalik for his take on the Russian ‘threat’ to the Baltics in time for the NATO Summit in Warsaw. Also, check out our media page for an excellent PBS documentary on the front lines in eastern Ukraine. We encourage you to subscribe to the Weekly Roundup newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
