Biden will use the "carrot and stick" strategy against Russia


Jake Sullivan, National Security Advisor to newly elected President of the United States, Jake Sullivan, said on Sunday that the new presidential administration will take the necessary steps to extend START, while at the same time trying to punish the Kremlin for its hacking attacks on American government networks. Writes about this The New York Times.


The implementation of these plans is complicated by the coronavirus raging in the United States. In addition, attempts to negotiate with Moscow on strategic offensive weapons will be complicated by Washington's desire to punish the Russian authorities for a hacker attack on 250 American government and private networks, the damage from which could be more significant than previously thought.

According to Biden, after the formal determination of the person responsible for the hacker hacks, the US authorities will take all the necessary actions for an adequate and proportional response.

Biden said that after the government formally determines who is responsible for the attack, "we will respond, and perhaps we will respond in kind." But this means taking steps to punish Russia while maintaining START III

- the American edition notes, speaking about the desire of the new owner of the White House to apply the "carrot and stick" strategy against Russia.

According to Sullivan, arms control is one of the few areas in which Russia and the United States can productively cooperate, and the extension of the non-Senate START treaty will test the possibility of working together in this direction.

    The Americans are so stupid that they take Russia for their estate in which the slaves are indignant and they can be humbled in this way. Or maybe they are not stupid and have something about which no one except them knows what the body is.

    The old senile was completely out of his mind. Go and rub your Wishlist with fish in the Gulf of Mexico, and it is not profitable to conclude agreements with the United States of America. Yankees believe - do not respect yourself!

    Will not work. No. The Ukrainians on the Maidan "nibbled" the gingerbread, we are not interested in the gnawed leftovers, but the whip ... let him give his son, maybe it will come in handy in his bedroom.
    Whoever comes to us with a whip will ... get it in a brazen red face. winked

    The RF is not the PRC, trade and economic relations are minimal, and therefore there are prerequisites that the United States will attempt to bribe the RF in its confrontation with the PRC and thus greatly complicate the position of the PRC.

    In principle, it is mortally dangerous to believe the United States, but if someone wants to believe, then let them immediately write a will and dig a hole for themselves.

    Well, what to take with the perverts. The United States is so convinced in its role as the world hegemon that it does not allow the idea of ​​the opposite. And all because they have never received a worthy response on their territory. They do not understand that it will no longer be possible to sit out across the oceans. The main thing is not to do stupidity yourself.
