Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses Russian views on global politics from his Russian Newspaper Monitor

Democracy and Class Struggle find the Russian Newspaper Monitor of Professor Kovacevic useful even if we do not always agree with his interpretation of events.

In particular we see US  policy towards Russia between Trump and Pence not being in contradiction with one another - we see Trump the showman playing a soft card to Russia and letting his front men Mattis and Pence play the hard card.

This is part of Kissinger/Trump policy of gaming Russia and what appear as contradictions are part of the showman Trump's script.

That does not mean everybody in the Trump administration is playing a pre-ordained part - General McMaster has to get on board quick and join the game - or he will be out.
