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. Make sure to check out this interview with Cliff Kupchan for an insightful take on the current state of U.S.-Russian relations, courtesy of the Eurasia Group. Also, see our media page for a video blowing up social media: a four-year-old Russian girl named Bella speaking seven different languages. 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.
