“new President Atmosphere Biden He promised that the United States would be more active on the international stage. This was expected to lead to conflicts with Rouge ±– Nicholas Boss wrote in a commentary in the Saturday issue of “Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung”.
A strategic competitor to the West
Vladimir Putin was – according to the journalist – one of the beneficiaries of the US “withdrawal policy”, which opened many new opportunities for opponents of the West.
Bossi noted that Biden, as Vice President during the Obama era, witnessed the steady deterioration of US-Russian relations. His Democratic Party has suffered as a result of the actions of the Russian agencies trying to influence the election outcome in United States of America.
“What is being flagged right now is not far from the level of the Cold War. There is no region in the world where Russia will not act as a strategic competitor to the West,” the commentator said.
The United States intends to send two warships to the Black Sea. There is also an ideological confrontation
Once again, he asserts, there are differences in world view between Russia and America. “In the past, the dividing line between capitalism and communism was, and today the struggle between democracy and authoritarianism,” we read in “FAZ”.
As before, there is an arms race again, including “practical little manifestations of force”. Information that the United States intends to send two warships to the Black Sea fits the situation. Russia – adds the commentator – announced the transfer of units from the Caspian Sea.
“The reason, of course, is the tensions in Ukraine,” Bossi explains. “Biden apparently wants to show Putin the limits. It would be a move not without risks, but it is a language that is understood in the Kremlin,” Vaz journalist concludes.
