We are glad to inform you that the German Journal Internationale Politik published an article by Dmitry Suslov "Allianz für die Ewigkeit. Wie Angela Merkel mit russischer Hilfe Geschichte schreiben könnte" in its November-December 2009 issue.
The much awaited summit between U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev set a new up-beat tempo in relations, and both sides are now looking to the future. But while a clear line has been drawn under the deterioration of relations, which reached their lowest post-Cold war level in August and autumn last year, it is too early to predict an improvement. And the current logic and chemistry of the “reset” could soon result in halting the healing of relations and lead to a new round of mutual irritation, resentment and deterioration, writes Dmirty Suslov.
Russian-U.S. relations are currently developing in an international environment that stands in dramatic contrast to the Cold War era and the period of transition that followed it.
