Russia-US Relations: Total Containment and Selective Dialogue

... be responsible for Russia policy after January 20 are motivated to strengthen a sound foundation. I am referring not to normalisation of relations but just a sound foundation, that is, channels of dialogue or at least attempts to find a common denominator in different situations. We are going from bad to worse. This has been typical of the past four years and for now we do not have the impression that this trend has outlived itself and is being replaced with something different, more sensible and ...

The START Treaty is a “Key Issue” for Russia

... even despite the upcoming presidential transition The Russian ambassador to the United States said there is still time to extend the Strategic Arms Control Treaty, due to expire in early February, even despite the upcoming presidential transition.

Confusing Order in Order to Order

... views nevertheless connect to a hierarchical mindset.7 Another level of ‘world order’ is that of regional-geographical groupings, such as the EU, the Association of South East Asian Nations, and the Eurasian Economic Union on the economic front, and NATO on the military level. Then we have a universal level, such as the United Nations, and a plethora of organisations, treaties and various agreements that transcend power blocs and geography.

Great Powers Competition in Moldova

... This situation is paradoxical because a rapprochement between Moscow and Chisinau could confer many strategic advantages on the Kremlin. In this respect, better Russian-Moldovan relations would thus hinder any possible advance of the European Union and NATO in Molodva, and could also force Ukraine to reconsider its diplomatic approach vis-à-vis the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).

The EU Will Not Break Free from America’s Amiable Stranglehold

... influence and competitive edge to the detriment of the U.S. itself. As a consequence, Americans began, quite rightly, to perceive Europeans as ungrateful cadgers and freeloaders (as Donald Trump said plainly). Trump’s America was never going to abolish NATO or the collective defense the Alliance symbolized, no matter how hard some members of the EU government and expert circles attempted to paint it that way . This was even if they did refer to the actual statements the U.S. President made calling ...
