NPR's Mike Shuster reports that the Clinton Administration has appeared to simplify its policy towards Russia as it awaits the likely election of acting President Vladimir Putin. The retirement of Boris Yeltsin, the second war in Chechnya, and the emergence of Putin have put arms control back as a priority in U.S/Russia relations. Though many policymakers have criticized Russia for human rights abuses in Chechnya...others say there is little the U.S. can do about that situation.
