“There is no "Cold War" between Russia and the U.S." - Condoleezza Rice made this statement as she arrived in Moscow to meet Vladimir Putin. But talks, concerning relations between the two countries, have been rather strained. Will Russia and the U.S. manage to, at the very least, preserve the Cold Peace between the two and help us live through this rather "uneasy time in the relationship", as Ms Rice puts it?

Nikolay Zlobin, a Senior Fellow and Director of Russian and Asian Programmes at the Centre for Defence Information in Washington D.C. is on “Spotlight” to tell us more.
