With President Obama going to serve a second term in office, new questions are emerging about the future of U.S.-Russia relations. The bilateral relationship is facing some of its greatest challenges since the end of the Cold War. How can Obama deepen and sustain the foundations for U.S.-Russia cooperation? Can the new administration overcome political rhetoric and bridge the so-called values gap?
