Abstract:

For the first 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the United States and its allies in NATO planned, postured, and engaged in Europe on the assumption that Russia was militarily capable of harming NATO and its European partners but did not intend to do so. Despite occasional tensions in relations between Washington and Moscow, Russia was widely believed to be on a trajectory toward closer integration and more peaceful relations with Europe, the United States, and its other neighbors.
