Frieza Batsarova wrote in “Moskovsky Komsomolets” about what will happen to Russian-American relations after Biden’s attack on Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin.
The article states: Russian-American relations have been exposed in recent days to several shocks: the US National Intelligence Report on “interference” in the presidential elections, the announcement of new sanctions against Russia, and Biden’s harsh talk about Putin, and no less important than that is the summoning of the Russian ambassador to Washington to Moscow.
In regard, he said American affairs researcher Mikhail Taratuta:
I think the American rhetoric will always be harsh. This is a trend that has formed over the past 4-5 years. It has to do with the fact that the demonization of Russia and Putin is almost the main tool in the struggle against Donald Trump. Indeed, for the first time in history, Russia has become a factor in American domestic policy. And the atmosphere that has been created at the moment does not allow even to escape from it. Therefore, we do not simply have to wait for any soft speech on Moscow.
In addition, I consider that the Russian Foreign Ministry’s response is very balanced and rational. Of course, it was now possible to escalate the situation to the extreme, but it is unlikely that this would be good for us or the United States and the world at large.
It is too early to predict how Russian-American relations will develop. Yes, there was a report of foreign interference, and Biden spoke very negatively of Putin. At the same time, it is difficult to say to what extent this statement reflects the political line of the new administration, because in fact it may be due to problems arising from the age of the new American leader.
Probably, another president would not have said this way. Even in the most difficult years of the Cold War, there were no personal attacks on the leaders of the Soviet Union. Although the two nations were willing to destroy each other. There is a kind of diplomatic protocol that controls that. And it has been violated here, without a doubt. And accordingly, came the sharp reaction.
