Short Letter vs. Long Telegram: US Ambassador Huntsman Departs Moscow

... ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman is a good occasion to take stock of one of the most difficult periods of Russia-US relations.

Russia-US Relations: Slow Steps with Timid Zigzags

The second Putin —Trump summit should not be a repetition of the first The second full-fledged Russian-American summit meeting is postponed until 2019. It is unlikely to be held in January or February – everything will depend on the still poorly predictable dynamics of the domestic political situation in the United States. Anyway, as the presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov optimistically noted recently, even before the end of the year Trump and Putin could meet on the sidelines of various multilateral...

Russia Must Show Caution Now That It Has Publicly Sided With Trump

Having publicly entered internal U.S. politics, Russia must be prepared for various unpleasant surprises. The main impression from the meeting between the Russian and U.S. presidents in Helsinki is that Vladimir Putin has apparently decided to back Donald Trump in his confrontation with most of the American political establishment.

Was Putin Not Generous Enough In Helsinki?

... stronger position than Donald Trump did. The Russian leader did not have to worry about a bothersome domestic opposition, a skeptical legislature or a Special Counsel investigating an alleged US interference in the Russian elections.
