This thesis introduces the US–Russia relations since the end of the Cold War, with special focus on the period following the Ukraine crisis. The purpose of this thesis is to address the impact of the contemporary crisis in Ukraine on the US-Russia relations. It reveals the hidden mechanism behind the contemporary crisis in Ukraine and identifies the extent by which the Ukraine crisis affects the Obama-Russia’s ‘reset.’ The impact of the crisis on Obama-Russia’s reset is measured by presenting and analyzing the US response to the crisis and the extent to which the US and Russia are cooperating on other issues than that of Ukraine. The result of this thesis indicates that Ukraine crisis did not bring an end to Obama’s ‘reset’ with Russia.
