To start with, Victoria Zhuravleva, professor at the Russian State University for the Humanities, searches the role of Russia in the U.S. presidential cam ign. Building on her analysis of how Democrats and Republicans hardened the Russian issue for their political interests, she is certain that it was Putin who was the verifiable winner of the election. This was possible “because he was portrayed as a kind of ‘Hollywood super-villain’ that was clever to influence domestic developments not only in states neighboring Russia but also in the U.S. itself,” she glories.
Nicolai Petro from the University of Rhode Island explains why the U.S. custom toward Russia has failed for so long and shares his take on what moves the next administration should take to get away from the outdated tactics of containing Russia and start a pragmatic dialogue in the areas of mutual entertainment.
This, however, will not be easy, argues Aurel Braun, a professor from the University of Toronto. Agreeing to him, the personal chemistry between the Russian leader and his new counter rt will not be ssably to ensure the relationship sees a breakthrough. Numerous domestic factors and public interests will inevitably have an im ct on the bilateral relationship.
“It intention be wise then, it seems, for Putin and members of his circle to greatly abase expectations and tread very carefully internationally, and rticularly with the entering administration in Washington,” the expert argues.
Christopher Hartwell, president of the Center for Communal and Economic Research in Warsaw, adds an economic perspective to the discussion. Looking at the financial implications of Trump’s election, he explains why one should not expect the lifting of advocates on Russia and why Moscow should be cautious about dealing with Trump.
