Resurgence of the Cold War

GMA 460L - Senior Seminar Research Lab

The Cold War was a period of political turmoil and tension between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United States from 1940 till 1991. The two countries had vastly differing political agendas and fought one another through proxy wars throughout the world, each promoting their own ideologies. Then due to economic and political reforms, the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, falling into a listless period. Out of the ruin came the newly named Russian Federation. Despite the country’s newly named government and a bolstered economy, the political agenda has not changed. The Russian Federation is continuing its predecessors agenda, leaving the world in the midst of a resurgence of the Cold War. Russia has continued to provide military and economic aid to strategic areas through out the world.
