A riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma:  When it comes to Russia, nothing is obvious and the most straight forward explanations of Russian actions are often wrong.  Ambassador Fairfax will draw upon Russian history, culture and politics as he provides insights into the current state of US-Russian relations as well as where we may be heading.


Ambassador Fairfax is a retired member of the career Senior Foreign Service of the United States.  In addition to serving as U.S. Ambassador to Kazakhstan and as the Director for Russia, Ukraine and Eurasia at the National Security Council, he also served in Moscow in the early years following the fall of communism as well as in Ukraine and Poland.  Other overseas assignments took him to Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Oman and Canada.
