Polls show that American voters rank the economy as their top election issue for the November election, but foreign policy is inching closer to center stage, with growing chaos in the Middle East and partisan disputes over Russia's war in Ukraine.

The “war in Ukraine is not just local war between Russia and Ukraine, but this is a competition for the whole world rules,” says Tetiana Hranchak, visiting assistant teaching professor in the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs.

“In general, I'd like to hear answers or comments, not so much about Ukraine, but about Russia, because it's not Ukraine, but Russia, that poses the biggest challenge today, and it would be good to have a vision regarding the prospects of relations with Russia,” says Hranchak.

“What exactly do we want to have in a result [of the war]? It depends on our vision of relations between the U.S. and Russia,” she says.
