Using the structure of the Long Telegram by George Kennan published in 1946, this monograph organizes unclassified and open source information into a contemporary understanding of Russian behavior. The analysis of the sources of Russian behavior provides a better understanding of the threat posed by a contemporary Russia. This monograph does not argue current policy or recommend new policy. The analysis here draws on current events and publications that meet the spirit of the original telegram.
