Russia: Sealing the New Quality of Its Foreign Policy

Reader comment on item: Obama's Hollow Promises Abroad

Submitted by myth (Germany), Feb 14, 2014 at 11:29

"Russia: Sealing the New Quality of Its Foreign Policy" writes Dmitri Trenin http://carnegie.ru/eurasiaoutlook/?fa=54244.

He portrays Putin as a leader much wiser than Obama who would even come to Obama's rescue:

"In fact, Putin helped President Barack Obama avoid an intervention which the U.S. president did not want and which would have probably made things worse for the United States in the Middle East and elsewhere."

It seems that the reputation lost by the US transferred to Russia and produces its political success.
