Igor Ivanov: Why Should We Be Grateful to Donald Trump? Bolton, as one of the architects of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), the neocon gang of unilateralists that pushed for the Iraq war, never met a regime change operation he couldn't support.

A Europe Whole and Free: A Utopia or, After All, a Future?

Is it high time that we restore the political unity of Europe on the basis of pragmatism? In the euphoria of the peaceful fall of the Berlin Wall long 30 years ago quite a few hopeful predictions were made for restoration of political unity of Europe, for a Europe whole and free, practically as a matter of course.

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. His appointment came during peak frenzy over the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the US election and Donald Trump’s “ties” to Russia.

At no other time in the history of our bilateral ...


Anti-Trumpers in Shock: Mueller Testimony Proves There Is No Case for Trump Impeachment

The entire fraud of the anti-Trump forces was never supposed to come to light, as they believed that Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election Anyone who watched the contorted and confused expressions on the face of former special counsel Robert Mueller during his testimony before two Congressional Committees on July 24, or heard his unsure, evasive, often-stumbling answers to questions, can now see why he had resisted making an appearance before Congress. Despite his resistance, Democratic Congressional...

The Moment of Truth

... are strong. So for a brief few days last week, one might contemplate, whether Trump would start a war for the sake of Israel. But no. President Trump does not want to go to war, not even for Israel. We should all be happy. Be glad, that Donald Trump, and not Hillary Clinton, sits in the White House. Hillary Clinton never refrained from supporting wars, and also when carrying out those wars in practice. Had Hillary Clinton been sitting in the White House, she would be speaking in a much ...

The House That Built Who?

... As for the former, the U.S.’s secession from the INF Treaty and the lack of interest in extending START mean that this topic is in limbo. As regards the latter, if the U.S. announcement to pull out of Syria is not a trick but the implementation of Donald Trump’s long cherished plans, then one more area of interaction—measures to avoid dangerous incidents—will be gone too. This does not mean an end to the Russian-American competition in the Middle East, but it will become non-contact, indirect ...
