A conversation with Ambassador John J. Sullivan, the U.S. Ambassador to the Russian Federation and former Deputy Secretary of State. We will discuss the highlights and low points of his tenure as Ambassador, the future U.S.-Russian relationship, Russia’s troop buildup along the Ukraine border, as well as the recent expansion of sanctions against Russia. The sanctions include restrictions on certain transactions involving Russian sovereign debt, as well as the designation of 46 individuals and entities implicated in Russia’s annexation of Crimea, foreign election interference and the SolarWinds cyberattack. Prior to joining the Department of State, Ambassador Sullivan was a BENS member and partner in Mayer Brown LLP, serving as the co-chair of the law firm’s national security practice.
