The U.S. Naval War College (NWC) has opened a Russia Maritime Studies Institute (RMSI) on their Newport, Rhode Island campus, tasked with the mission of better understanding Russia's expanding role in the global maritime environment. Establishing the institute is partially in response to a resurgent Russian military that has enabled Moscow to assert itself in Ukraine, Syria and elsewhere. RMSI will leverage connections across the U.S. Government and academia to conduct research into Russian naval policy, strategy, maritime operations, shipbuilding, international law and other topics.
