9/24 Weekly Roundup

Dear Readers, 

Enjoy our latest edition of the Weekly Roundup, a collection of must-read articles on U.S.-Russian relations and the broader Eurasia region compiled at The Elicitor each week. Guest Contributor Julian G. Waller follows up with another essay on legislative elections in the post-Soviet space: the implications of two new opposition parliamentarians in Belarus. Also, please take a minute to sign a petition against the Sept. 5 decision to brand the Russian pollster Levada Center a ‘foreign agent.’ We encourage you to share this newsletter with family, friends, and colleagues, subscribe to the Weekly Roundup, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
