Obama tries to thaw icy Russian ties with arms cuts

Only hours after U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Moscow on Monday for a summit meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, the United States and Russia announced a preliminary agreement on a deal to reduce the number of their nuclear weapons.

The deal represents a big step forward in relations between the two countries, which had been set back by the Russian invasion of Georgia last summer.

Nina Kruscheva, granddaughter of former Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev and professor at the New School, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the current and future state of American-Russian relations.
