Under the heading above, Maria Bizchasnaya, in Svobodnaya Brisa, wrote about the practical impossibility of Moscow’s interaction with the new US administration.
The article read: US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on TV MSNBC Difficult times await relations between Washington and Moscow. According to Sullivan, there are issues in which the positions of the two countries differ fundamentally, in addition to the fact that the Americans are about to “decisively respond” to a number of Russian measures.
In regard he said Researcher at the Center for Security Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences Konstantin Blokhin:
There are many problems in Russian-American relations. However, in light of recent events, cooperation even in those areas in which Russia and the United States have a common interest in principle has become difficult.
Objectively speaking, the United States is in a new cold war with Russia. In our society there are debates about whether it can be called this and what defining characteristics it has, but it is clear that we do not want it. The United States wants it, and they have no doubt that they are waging a cold war against us. I constantly read reports from the American “think tanks”, and there this topic runs like a red thread.
However, are there any questions that the United States and Russia can find common ground on?
The Americans are ready to cooperate with Russia mainly on arms control issues. It is no coincidence that one of Biden’s first steps was to extend the START III treaty. Cybersecurity could become another area of interaction. But now, after accusations by Russia of election interference and pirate attacks, the topic is toxic. There may be prospects for extending the nuclear deal with Iran, but this topic does not directly concern Russia.
Otherwise, the area of cooperation between the United States and Russia is very limited.
