Russia's Counterproductive Counterterrorism, Hearing Before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, One Hundred Sixteenth Congress, First Session, June 12, 2019   [open pdf - 14MB]

This is the June 12, 2019 hearing on "Russia's Counterproductive Counterterrorism" before the U.S. Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE). From the opening statement of Richard Hudson, CSCE Commissioner, the hearing was convened to "examine the Kremlin's counterterrorism policies and practices, [...] to better understand what those practices are, how they developed over time, whether they're effective, and to what extent they dovetail, or not, with U.S. interests." According to the Commissioner's statement it is important for the U.S. to maintain a clear sense of Russian counterterrorism practices because "(1) Russia seeks to claim the mantle of leadership on this issue internationally [...] [and] (2) Russia's actions in this space have impact far beyond Russia's borders." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mariya Y. Omelicheva, Rachel Denber, and Michael Carpenter.
