7/15 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 essay publication written by Guest Contributor Cedric Kenney who discusses the implications of the recent uptick in Russo-Japanese relations. Also, make sure to check out our first expert interview with Richard Giragosian, Director of the Yerevan-based Regional Studies Center, who provides a timely update on the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. On media, see the newest cadre of Russian spies who already blew their cover after partying a bit too hard after graduation. We encourage you to subscribe to the Weekly Roundup newsletter, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
