“Russia Issues Subtle Threats More Far-Reaching Than a Ukraine Invasion” – Dmitriy Suslov about Ukrainian problem
Associate Director of Centre for Comprehensive European and International Studies Dmitriy Suslov expressed his opinion on tensions between Russia, Ukraine, and the United States in an article for the New York Times magazine. Basic ideas:
-A hypothetical Russian invasion of Ukraine would not undermine the security of the United States
-The overall logic of Russian actions is that it is the U.S. and NATO that must pay a high price
-Beyond a more threatening Russian military posture, the United States would be particularly sensitive to closer military cooperation between Russia and China.
-The United States does not want to increase its military presence in Europe, as this would be done at the cost of containing China
