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...


Looking at Tiananmen Square through the Brandenburg Gate

...

Was Putin Not Generous Enough In Helsinki?

If Putin does not believe in the political future of Trump, the value of the Helsinki meeting in Putin’s eyes should have been quite limited Vladimir Putin came to Helsinki with much stronger position than Donald Trump did.
