America. A system that doenst work anymore

... tariffs on Chinese telecom company ZTE. ● On July 6, 2018, the United States imposed 25% tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, in the same vein China also levied tariffs on U.S. products.

... again started discussing the possibility of a nuclear war when Pyongyang violated the resolutions of the UN Security Council by holding another, sixth nuclear test and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles in 2017, and when U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking at the UN General Assembly, responded by talking about the complete destruction of North Korea. Inter-Korean normalization could give a powerful impetus to resolving the nuclear problem since North Korea’s nuclear missile program ...


Russia–U.S. Relations Will Not Get Any Better

Interview with Sergey Rogov Recently, the international agenda has been dominated by the tensions in Russia–U.S. relations, the probable impeachment of Donald Trump, the sanctions regime and the destruction of arms control mechanisms.

From Pepe the Frog to #10yearschallenge: Why Politicians Have Turned to Memes

... about this form of communication, it has long been the norm in the West, and in the United States in particular. What else could we have expected when the president of the country is a living, walking meme? Even before embarking upon a political career, Donald Trump had established himself as a branding expert. His “You’re fired” catchphrase from the TV show The Apprentice and indeed Trump himself (as a symbol of luxury and wealth) have long been brands. Perhaps some of his tweets are too straightforward ...


Political Landscape of Europe. The Spectre of Geopolitical Solitude

... establishment in the United States still sets the tone in shaping these perceptions in the West, although the uniformity of the Euro-Atlantic region is withering away. An obvious example is the G7 summit in Quebec in June, which ended in fiasco with Donald Trump withdrawing his signature from the final communiqué.

... isn’t reflected in the behavior of Western powers. Even though there is a very tense relationship with, say, the United States, Germany, France or even Britain, their policies don’t reflect the view that Russia is a significant threat. Look at Donald Trump, for example, and his behavior vis-a-vis Russia. No one would treat a superpower the way he does, canceling meetings last-minute by tweet, despite the fact that the previous tweet two hours ago said exactly the opposite. This is not the way ...


New U.S. Cybersecurity Strategies

... and mechanisms for reducing cyberthreats. Unfortunately, all agreements were frozen following the outbreak of the Ukrainian crisis. And they cannot be considered tenable under current conditions, as all attempts to bring them back to life have failed.

Back to Pershings: What the U.S. Withdrawal From the 1987 INF Treaty Means

... Nuclear Forces Treaty, or INF. It’s in line with the U.S. president’s general approach to foreign policy: he renounces agreements that he believes to be unfavorable to the United States. In this light, it’s unlikely that this recent decision by Donald Trump was conceived as a bargaining chip in negotiations with Moscow. From the political standpoint, Trump’s coup de theatre on the eve of U.S. congressional elections deals a blow to his critics, who constantly rebuke the president for appeasing ...

He is often quoted during discussions about the “mysterious Russian soul.” Indeed, the classical literature of any country helps readers better understand its culture.
