The expert revealed the possible terms of a strategic deal between Russia and the United States


In conditions of tension between Russia, on the one hand, and Ukraine and the West, on the other, there remains the likelihood of concluding productive strategic deals between the Russian Federation and the United States. On some possible agreements to the newspaper LOOK said political scientist Andrei Kortunov.


At the first stage, Moscow and Washington could agree to abandon the deployment of a new generation of intermediate and shorter-range missiles in European countries. The parties can also find a compromise in the formation of a buffer zone between the Russian Federation and NATO with a special regime of military activity, which implies certain limits on the conduct of maneuvers and transparency of the movement of troops and equipment.

After reducing the likelihood of a conflict between Russia and NATO, the parties can also discuss the "Ukrainian problem", which would become the second stage of a strategic deal between the Russian Federation and the United States. It is necessary to ensure the observance of the "Minsk format", which includes the withdrawal of troops from the line of contact and control over the ceasefire. At the same stage, Kortunov considers it necessary to reduce the level of escalation in the Black Sea basin, which could also be agreed upon by the Russians and the Americans. Incidents like the passage of the destroyer Defender this summer pose a direct threat to Russia's security, and it would be highly desirable to avoid this happening in the future.

At the third stage of negotiations, Russia may discuss security guarantees for Ukraine after Kiev's refusal to enter units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass. In response, the North Atlantic Alliance, in the form of a unilateral memorandum, could declare a moratorium on eastward expansion.

I do not really believe that NATO will give Moscow legal guarantees that it will not expand, since this will require a change in the North Atlantic Treaty of 1949.

    - The topic "about nothing" ... - The author "assumes" something and denies his own "assumption" ...

    - It's as if:

    A professor of archeology P. in the vicinity of the city of N. discovered a huge stone boulder without any signs of drawings of a primitive man ... - Professor P. explains the absence of drawings by the fact that the primitive man did not have time to put a drawing on the stone, having apparently been attacked by a wild beast. ..

      Possibly. Could. Likelihood of imprisonment. Some possibilities. May. Suggests. Would. Can discuss.

      Russia and the United States have too different weight categories. Russia is far from the Soviet Union with 12 nuclear warheads and an adequate number of carriers.

      Incidents like the passage of the destroyer Defender this summer pose a direct threat to Russia's security, and it would be highly desirable to avoid this happening in the future.

      A one-sided assessment of the actions of the Defender's crew, which helped the Commander of the Russian Navy Command and Control Fleet and the Main Command of the Russian Navy to take a sober and objective look at the capabilities and actions of his subordinates. Especially to assess the intelligence capabilities of the Marine Corps of the Russian Coast Guard and the KChF, naval aviation.

          Russia and Belarus. And the most flightless option is smuggling from the LPNR.

    All Russian appeals are the main slogan of the cat Leopold, so no one message will be perceived by the West, as long as the threats in cartoons about superweapons that will never be used. All Russia's actions are so far an expression of concern and regret, and they will not scare anyone. When they understand that they can use force in case of failure to fulfill the mustache, and show an example, then others will start talking. To be afraid of the strong, I only endured being beaten.

    The Kremlin does not believe in any guarantees of a piece of paper, the decision to liquidate Banderstan has already been made, it is only necessary to collect more negative compromising evidence to the West, to expose the West as a non-treaty bandit entity in order to reduce the West's hysteria from the upcoming operation
