The Coming Bipolarity and Its Implications: Views from China and Russia

Although the U.S.-China-Russia triangle is still a popular and useful analytical pattern and possible future scenario for relations, it does not resemble that of the Cold War The Chinese authorities have never accepted or used the concept of China-U.S. bipolarity. Neither the so-called co-governance (G2) nor the bipolar confrontation between China and the United States is consistent with China’s diplomatic philosophy and policy. The Russian official narrative has also rejected the idea that the...

Moscow’s New Rules

... among several former Soviet republics. Crucially, Russia has proven unwilling to become the donor of the union, and its partners equally unwilling to cede parts of their sovereignty to supranational bodies that would be dominated by Russia. This dual refusal has put an end to the outsize ambitions of some, and unrealistic expectations of others. With Belarus, Russia set out to build a union state back in 1999. Since the start, that union has been little more than a cover for special deals that Belarusian ...

Joe Biden’s Foreign Policy and Russia

Biden calls Russia the biggest threat to the United States, and sees Moscow’s policies as aimed at weakening Western countries internally Biden calls Russia the biggest threat to the United States, and sees Moscow’s policies as aimed at weakening Western countries internally; undermining the unity of such institutions as NATO and the European Union; and subverting the liberal world order. When Joe Biden said in 2011 that he had looked into Putin’s eyes and found that he had no soul, Vladimir Putin’s...

Trump May Be Leaving, But Russia Sanctions Will Stay

Sanctions are becoming a form of economic regulation in this era of new protectionism and the United States has the most opportunities to exercise this kind of regulation in its own interests Sanctions are becoming a form of economic regulation in this era of new protectionism. By virtue of its unique position in the world, the United States has the most opportunities to exercise this kind of regulation in its own interests.

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

... needed, the EU’s major powers chose to enlarge their union into the area of the USSR’s former vital interests. They steered a course of taking unilateral actions that served their own misconstrued national interests solely and of undermining the USA’s unquestionable leadership on the global financial market, in international trade and in setting the global agenda. From the very outset, the political élites of the EU and its leading member states made a huge strategic mistake in their assessment ...

RECP, START and Germany´s Indo-Pacific Strategy

There are five interesting events in US-Eurasian relations: First the rejection by the Trump-USA of Putin’s offer to extend the initial START contract by 1 year and Putin’s declaration at the Valdai Club that Russia is now planning a military alliance with China and that he had no worries if China rearms itself and, like the USA and Russia,...

‘Dual containment’ on Moscow, Beijing likely to continue under Biden

The Biden administration will not accomplish a lot if it attempts to resurrect the US-China-Russia triangle Let's face it - no US-China-Russia triangle exists now. Instead, for a couple of years we observed the US policy of "dual containment" with Washington applying more and more pressure on both Beijing and Moscow. This pressure has become an important factor cementing the Chinese-Russian strategic partnership. This situation is a clear strategic setback for Washington. Since at least...

How U.S. Elections Could Impact EU-Russia Relations

Even a partial restoration of transatlantic unity under a President Biden will be a blow to the official Kremlin narrative about the inexorable movement of the international system toward a polycentric world order For several long years now, the European Union has been waging onerous trench warfare on two fronts. On the eastern front, Brussels has been in conflict with a malign Moscow since 2014: refusing to repeal sanctions against Russia, deflecting all the Kremlin’s new information attacks,...

Making America Normal Again?

... developments in that area. Much will depend on Tehran itself being willing to resume the dialogue. Pro-Israeli lobbyists will have little influence on the White House, but Biden is unlikely to abolish Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and to recognise Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights. At the same time, Israel should be getting ready for the new administration to put major pressure on it regarding the West Bank settlements. Some changes will certainly be seen in U....
