Kimberly Marten on U.S./NATO Negotiations with Russia
January 12, 2022

Kimberly Marten (Professor of Political Science, Barnard College/Harriman Institute) appeared on Voice of America, Al Jazeera, and Hofstra University’s WRHU Radio to discuss current negotiations between the U.S. and Russia and NATO and Russia.

Marten argues that there may be hope for future negotiations on a new long-range missile arms control treaty in Europe, and on reestablishing notifications about military exercises by both sides, but that President Putin’s decision about whether or not to take military action in Ukraine will have little to do with what happens in these talks. She says that Putin’s calculations will depend on the perceived consequences of Western sanctions and of Western support for Ukraine’s defense should he take military action.
