Great Powers Competition in Moldova

... states closer together. In this respect, China has succeeded in modernising the Moldovan infrastructure despite obstacles rooted in corruption. This makes Moldova a potential laboratory for Chinese soft power and indirectly benefits both westerners and Russians.

Focusing on the Bigger Picture

U.S.-Russia Relations Post-Election The Russian media has been overwhelmed by expert (and not so expert) predictions over the past few days about who will win the U.S. presidential elections and how the results will affect U.S.-Russia relations. Both candidates have their fair share of supporters and detractors in Russia. From the outside, it would seem that current President Donald Trump is generally more popular, despite the fact that relations between Washington and Moscow ...


US Elections and Sanctions Against Russia

.... The most famous bills are DASKA and DETER. In late September-early October of this year, two new bills on this topic appeared.

... the White House. Andrey Kortunov: Trump 2.0: End of the Old Era, but Not the Beginning of a New One The results of the November elections will have serious consequences for all of these countries, positive for some, not so much for others. As for Russia, the historical significance of the U.S. elections is up for debate. One gets the impression that Russia is the exception that proves the rule here, as is often the case.
