Where the 2020 Candidates Stand on Russia

... Biden has a reputation for bringing a sort of charm when it comes to building relations with other countries, it’s unlikely that he’ll carry with him that charm to build better relations with Russia.

Russia-2019: A Summing Up of the Economic Track-Record

Russia is approaching the end of 2019 with a set of important achievements that should form the basis for continued resilience to external shocks and the maintenance of macroeconomic stability. Apart from low inflation level (some would argue, however, that it may be too low for comfort), there is also the notable exchange rate stability, strong stock market performance, as well as the launching of the National projects that are currently seen as a key gateway to boosting Russia’s economic growth...


American King Kong and the Law of the Jungle

... States. A significant number of members of Congress do not put one iota of faith in the US Commander-in-Chief. It is no coincidence that the process of approving the budget for 2020 almost coincided with the launch of the impeachment procedure against Donald Trump in the House of Representatives. At one time, Otto von Bismarck remarked on confidence in Russia: “Never believe Russians, because Russians do not even trust themselves.” How can America’s allies, friends and especially opponents trust ...


Goodbye, U.S. Foreign Policy

We’ve reached a new era, when America can become great again, but only within its own limits and borders Since the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump in 2017, U.S. foreign policy has been a rollercoaster. Its ups and downs are far from being predictable. From the outside view, American actions on the international arena seem hectic, which itself affects the international security system,...


“Ukraine-Gate” and Russia

... Issue by Finding a Compromise Solution, then the Russian Leadership Has no Reason to Rejoice at Ukraine-Gate The significance and possible consequences of Ukraine-Gate unfolding in Washington can be assessed in different ways.

The Syrian Crisis Is Now Russia’s to Resolve

... play a role in Syria, but if it wants to be the leading power, simply filling the void left by the US will not be enough. It has long been observed that Americans create problems both when they move into foreign countries and when they leave. President Donald Trump’s decision to abandon the US’s Kurdish allies certainly invited the Turks to intervene on a larger scale than before. That presented Moscow with the unpalatable possibility of a direct collision between its allies in Ankara and Damascus....

UN Headquaters: Is It Worth Trying to Move a Cemetery?

... start. Wherever the General Assembly adopted an anti-American resolution or the United States found itself in the minority in the Security Council, people in Washington resumed the debate on whether participation in the UN met the national interests.
