Biden’s foreign policy with Russia – Yasmeen Aftab Ali


What is apparent on the face of President-elect Biden’s coming tenure is that relations between Washington and Moscow are going to be on a slippery slope. Relations between both are at the lowest ebb since World War II and need sustained efforts at different levels of interaction to avoid confrontational politics. Besides other flashpoints; Russia’s annexation of Crimea [2014] and the understanding between Trump and Putin, coupled with allegations of Moscow meddling in 2016 U.S elections stick out like a sore thumb.

Under Biden’s watch, there will be no ‘mixed messages’ [reference twitter outbursts and efforts to set a redirect by his team members], the policy will be sharp, loud and clear.
