What's Next for Russia US Relations ?
Democracy and Class Struggle see Stephen Cohen as one of those voices for a new less hostile policy towards Russia - it is shared to some degree by Kissinger and they both face very strong opposition from the US Foreign Policy Establishment - but the aim of this policy is what we call the "Kissinger Moment" which intention is undermine the strategic relationship of Russia with Iran and China.
Democracy and Class Struggle see different tactics being used against Russia by Trump but no Kissinger Moment in breaking of Russia from it strategic interests.
A new reset with Russian US Relations may reduce some tension in short term but that will be leveraged upward with US hostility towards Iran and China.
