Sanctions Will Widen the Russia-West Rift in 2019
Five years in, the standoff between Russia and the West shows no signs of abating. On Feb. 13, a group of bipartisan U.S. senators from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee introduced a bill to ramp up sanctions against Russia due to its alleged interference in U.S. elections and its "malign" activities in Ukraine and Syria. In the meantime, reports have emerged that both the United States and European Union are close to passing a new set of sanctions against Russia over the showdown between Russian and Ukrainian forces in the Sea of Azov. The European Union, meanwhile, is also considering its own raft of sanctions. And given that Russia is unlikely to plot a new course in Ukraine or Syria as a result of increased sanctions, the West's measures are only likely to inflame Moscow-West tensions.

Why the U.S. Will Keep Russian Sanctions on Simmer, Not Boil
The standoff between the United States and Russia shows no signs of abating, and nowhere is the discord more apparent than in Washington's use of sanctions against Moscow. Washington expanded its sanctions against Moscow on Aug. 27 by banning the export to Russia of sensitive national security-related goods, including calibration equipment and gas turbine engines. But hot on the heels of the present sanctions is another bill, the Defending American Security From Kremlin Aggression Act, that could challenge Russia. But the senators might not succeed in passing their bill to the fullest extent, as some of their congressional colleagues have expressed concern that the new sanctions could go too far in punishing the Russian economy -- and even affect the wider world. But regardless of the ultimate degree of U.S. actions, Washington is unlikely to forego sanctions as a weapon in its relations with the Kremlin.

U.S., Russia: New Sanctions Against Moscow Impede Efforts to Improve Relations
Despite efforts by U.S. President Donald Trump to improve relations with Russia, Washington's economic pressure on Moscow is only increasing. The U.S. State Department announced on Aug. 8 that the United States would be expanding sanctions against Russia after the poisoning of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his adult daughter, Yulia, in the United Kingdom during March. The new sanctions stem from a 1991 law known as the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act, which "requires the President to make a determination with respect to whether a country has used chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or has used lethal chemical or biological weapons against its own nationals." Though the initial deadline to enact sanctions under the law had passed, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared on Aug. 8 that Russia had violated the act, triggering the sanctions.

Play-by-Play: Russia Faces Another Scandal and the World Wises Up to 'Techno-Doping'
In the age of streaming media and digital content, March is a good month for the sports consumer. The Pyeongchang Winter Paralympics, which ran March 9-18, were the most successful Paralympic Games to date; with almost 600 competitors across 80 adaptive sports events, the competition broke attendance records and generated more social media attention than the last two Paralympic Games combined. And in the United States, the third month of the year means March Madness, the annual collegiate basketball championship tournament. As has increasingly been the case in recent years, the tournament serves as a focal point in the conversation about the amateur status of collegiate athletes who can't earn a salary while just about everyone else -- from coaches to media outlets -- cashes in on their labor. (Don't expect this to be the year of any seismic changes, though. College sports remain the cake that Americans want to
