Abstract

This research project encompasses the contemporary trends of Russia's relationship with the United States and Serbia's leaders. It focuses on Aleksandar Vučić and Donald Trump's leadership behaviors, two actors who Vladimir Putin has promoted in order to understand what Russia seeks in international affairs. The countries in focus were chosen because they reflect traditionally positive and negative relationships with Russia. Frequently, the intentions behind international actors can become convoluted through narrow topics of analysis. This is a comprehensive study of the histories and relationships to bridge the gap in global trends. I have found that Russia has been escalating its means to break the United States' global dominance for rivalry and security. Ultimately, the increasing tendency to influence countries' leaders shows that Russia intends to obtain more global power.
