US-Russia strategic relations : Obama and Biden visit Moscow, Tbilisi and Kiev : planned contradictions? by Henry Plater-Zyberk( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the election of Barack Obama, Moscow expected that US foreign policy would change, despite Obama's links with Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter's National Security Adviser, seen in Moscow not only as anti-Soviet but also as anti-Russian, and with Michael McFaul, a noted authority on Russia. Russia was ready to improve relations with the USA and the West as a whole. Both sides are interested in the reduction of strategic offensive weapons, although Russia was certain to insist on the removal of the missile defence system from Poland and the Czech Republic. Although Russia and the US agreed on all parameters on strategic arms reductions the day before the summit in Moscow, there was no guarantee that President Obama's visit would be a success

Strategic implications of the evolving Shanghai Cooperation Organization by Henry Plater-Zyberk( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in regional politics and the significance of the organization for U.S. interests are widely misunderstood. The organization is emphatically not a military bloc, and yet engages in joint activities which resemble military cooperation to U.S. eyes. It is, in theory, open to new members; but at present is highly unlikely to accept any. Its rhetoric firmly opposes U.S. presence and activity on the territory of member states, and yet individual member states leverage basing agreements with the U.S. to their advantage. The author reviews SCO's history and stated aspirations, and measures these against actual achievements. He concludes that, with the notable exception of the Regional Anti-Terrorist Structure (RATS), the great majority of SCO accomplishments are of little significance other than to provide an additional multinational vehicle through which China and in particular Russia can seek to counter U.S. and Western activity in Central Asia
Russia's contribution as a partner in the war on terrorism by Henry Plater-Zyberk( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph examines terrorism and counterterrorism from the Russian perspective so as to assess prospects for cooperation with Russia in fighting terror. It concludes that, regardless of the state of political relations between Russia and the United States at any given time, longer-term systemic and conceptual obstacles to meaningful cooperation may well prevent any significant Russian contribution to U.S. counterterrorism efforts. This monograph details Russian definitions of terrorism and then looks at the Russian security "pyramid," which sets out the relevant authority structure. It examines the roles of coordinating bodies such as the Security Council and the National Anti-Terrorist Committee, before looking at the individual organs involved in counterterrorism operations, particularly the Federal Security Service and Ministry of the Interior. The monograph then explores the most important question for Russia in terms of terrorism, the North Caucasus, and finally explores the wider context of the relationship between Russia and the West, particularly the United States, looking at the lengthy list of tensions affecting that relationship even before Russia's seizure of Crimea, which took place after the monograph was completed
