Aid to Russia

When the Soviet Union abruptly ceased to exist on December 25, 1991, it seemed that the West, particularly the U.S., finally had what it had always wanted--the opportunity to introduce quick, all-encompassing economic reform that would remake Russia in the West's own image.

Macedonia

Small and relatively unknown, Macedonia (officially called the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, or FYROM) is the key to stability in the southern Balkans.

Albania

After the cold war, Albania became a country of strategic importance to the United States.
