No other bilateral partnering promises the degree of economic growth, innovation advancement, and global security enhancement as does that of the U.S. and the Russian Federation. This relationship is critically important to both our countries and to the world, and warrants our support.

Council for U.S.-Russia Relations works with our members and government partners to support the bilateral relationship. The Council runs the Russian American Pacific Partnership (RAPP) bilateral forum engaging regional and federal governments with the private sector.

We bring over twenty years of experience in U.S.-Russia relations and credibility on both sides necessary to build consensus around our bilateral agendas.

Contact us for details on our work and how you may join with the Council.

Russian American Pacific Partnership (RAPP)

Our cornerstone program activity, the Russian American Pacific Partnership (RAPP), is the longest continually running bilateral intergovernmental forum between the U.S. and Russia. To learn more about RAPP, please see the RAPP page on this site for details.

Governance and Funding

Established in October 2011 with offices in Seattle, Washington, the Council is governed by its Board of Directors.  The Council is supported by members, program sponsors and participants from both countries. 

Thank you for your interest in the Council and we look forward to hearing from you and to working together on U.S.-Russian cooperative relations.
