US Diplomacy After the Russo-Ukrainian War

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Oct 12, 2023 | Global Leadership Foundation

A new assertiveness from the BRICS, comingon the heels of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, demonstrates the changing globallandscape in which the United States is now competing. In their article for theGlobal Leadership Foundation, Chester Crocker, Kelly McFarland and RyanConner define the new strategic environment as a globaldiffusion of power, where middle powers are asserting greater agency relativeto major powers, such as the United States, China, and Russia. They suggestthat, to remain a global leader, the United States should build new alliancesand partnerships that are tailored to this reality. For Washington, this doesnot make middle powers adversaries to work against, but rather vital partnersin addressing geopolitical challenges. These powers speak with louder voices - thoughnot necessarily in unison - and it is incumbent upon the United States toengage with what they are saying.
