(p.168) (p.169) Chapter 6 Bill Clinton’s “Russia Hand”
Conversations on Russia

Strobe Talbott

Oxford University Press

The interviews given by Strobe Talbott in December 2000 and early 2001 illuminate the critical policy choices driven by the personal chemistry between Clinton and Yeltsin. He responded with his reaction to Putin's consolidating measures in early 2005. He was deputy secretary of state from 1994 to 2001 in the Clinton Administration and author of The Russia Hand: A Memoir of Presidential Diplomacy. He suggested in the interview that in order for Russia to survive as a unitary state, it must resume its development as a federal and a democratic state.
