Political tensions with Russia have escalated sharply since the passage of the Magnitsky Act and of Russian legislation barring Americans from adopting Russian children. These latest developments, however, are symptomatic of a greater American failure to work effectively with Russia that started under Bill Clinton and continued under George W.

Cohen also discussed the ongoing student occupation of a Moscow university, an important development that the American media has neglected to cover. Listen to the full audio for more.
