"In addition to ongoing Russian aggression in Georgia and Ukraine, Russia is willing to undermine norms within the existing international system beyond traditional military campaigns to encompass a suite of 'hybrid' tools that are used to gain influence. Russia's campaign aims to undermine core institutions of the West, such as NATO and the EU, and to weaken faith in the democratic and free-market system. The United States has sought to deter further Russian intervention through the projection of strength and unity with U.S. allies, and by building resilience and reducing vulnerability among allies facing Russian pressure and coercion.' This is the US State Department's description of current relations between the Russian Federation and the United States.
