Countdown to War: The Coming U.S.-Russia Conflict


On April 21, the Center hosted an event to discuss the new National Interest cover story “Russia and America: Stumbling to War,” by Graham Allison, Director of Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Dimitri K. Simes, President of the Center for the National Interest. The speakers cautioned against the unintentional escalation of the Ukraine crisis and described the grave implications rising tensions could have for regional security. The event was moderated Peter Baker, Chief White House Correspondent for The New York Times and a former Washington Post Bureau Chief in Moscow.
