ABSTRACT
The article reports that Russia and the U.S. have different opinions regarding the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a security institution which seeks to reduce political, economic and social factors within societies that could contribute to instability and terrorism. According to Russia, the OSCE is focusing too much on democracy and human rights. On the other hand, the U.S. does not want OSCE to change its functions but instead look at Russia.
