Trump and Putin: "Reset" or final break-up?

on Sun Jul 09, 2017 11:15 pm
Trump and Putin: "Reset" or final break-up?

On the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg July 7, a meeting of the presidents of the United States and Russia has been announced. While the Kremlin is struggling to present the talks as a landmark event, Trump has already sent quite an unpleasant signal to Putin in his appeal to cease Russia’s “destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere."

On the eve of the visit of the U.S. and Russian leaders to Hamburg, where the first meeting between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin is scheduled, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told reporters that it would be held in the format of a separate conversation - a "full sitting meeting" is planned, rather than a brief contact. According to the Kremlin, the agenda will include the fight against international terrorism, the issues of Syria and Ukraine, as well as disarmament. UNIAN has asked Russian, Ukrainian, and Western experts whether such a "truncated summit" can contribute to the Donbas settlement and whether a "grand deal" between Washington and Moscow is possible.

Different interests and dangerous rapprochement

Despite Putin's administration bravado in their attempts to represent the upcoming meeting as the one at the "peer to peer" level, it works, perhaps, only on Russian information consumers. On the one hand, the very fact of a full-fledged bilateral meeting, where delegations will be sitting before each other, is already deemed as a kind of symbolic victory for Putin. On the other hand, this is also Donald Trump’s personal victory over the U.S. Congress and over the majority of members of his own Cabinet who have recommended that the U.S. president confine himself to some brief hallway meeting, as Obama had with Putin the latest time the leaders of the two powers met in person. "Trump again and again shows his longing to Putin, which can’t be explained rationally, and a desire to somehow meet half-way with him," said Andrei Piontkovsky, a Russian publicist, adding that in terms of content, Trump will fail to continue this line of concessions.

This is due, in particular, the discrepancy between Trump’s personal aspirations and those of the American political elite. "He understands that refusal from sanctions imposed late last year by Obama when the latter drove Russian diplomats (read “intelligence operatives”) from the two mansions in Maryland and New York, or some serious "deals" on Syria and Ukraine in the current political atmosphere that prevails in Washington are simply impossible and will constitute a political suicide for him," the expert says.

Indeed, the political elites of both countries understand and recognize the fact that despite Trump's weird attraction to Putin, the strategic interests of the U.S. and Russia just do not coincide, while it is even difficult to reach compromise on some issues where common interests exist.

Lilia Shevtsova, a Russian political scientist and Doctor of Historical Sciences, shares this opinion. According to her, Trump and Putin will try to go beyond the symbolism of their meeting and pretend they are starting a new chapter in bilateral relations.

Everything is quite simple with Putin. Moscow's intentions and goals are clear: to get out of isolation and resume "bipolarity," because relations with the U.S. are the base of Russia’s foreign policy and confirmation of its "status." But no one dares say for sure what exactly Trump is trying to achieve. "What’s the model of his ‘deal’? Unless something unimaginable happens, they both can say that they have come to an understanding. But predicting Trump’s behavior is always in vain. His is the man driven by impulses and wild ignorance in foreign policy," Shevtsova argues.

According to her, Putin is much more experienced and skillful than Trump, and can even impose on him the course of discussion of some issues to which Trump's team will not be ready (although there are plenty of levers to get the U.S. president back on the right track). "Therefore, any attempt to "normalize relations," which both presidents seek, will soon bring to the surface a deep gap in interests," the expert stresses. Moreover, in her opinion, it may so happen that Putin and Trump during their actual meeting "will not like each other": "It is possible and even most likely to be the case..."

In this regard, the upcoming meeting between Trump and Putin cannot become a turning point in the relations between the two states, or change the logic of these relations. Moreover, it is unlikely that the two leaders will raise a number of issues sensitive for both, in particular, the one of the Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.........................

EU energy groups criticise US sanctions threats to Nord Stream pipeline

on Sun Jul 09, 2017 11:29 pm
EU energy groups criticize US sanctions threats to Nord Stream pipeline

Interference to highly politicized Gazprom project described as ‘unacceptable’

European energy companies have demanded the US abandon an “unacceptable” threat of sanctions against a proposed Russian gas pipeline to Europe that has become one of the EU’s biggest corporate and political battlegrounds. 

Isabelle Kocher, chief executive of the French utility Engie, told the Financial Times that she hoped EU leaders had used the just concluded G20 summit in Hamburg to “say to the US government and president the extent to which this idea is incomprehensible”. 

Engie, Britain’s Royal Dutch Shell, Austria’s OMV and German companies Uniper and Wintershall have agreed to fund half the cost of the €9.5bn Nord Stream 2 pipeline being built by Gazprom between Russia and Germany. Supporters say the project is critical to safeguarding future gas supplies to the EU. 

However, the project was thrown into uncertainty last month after the US Senate voted to include the pipeline in new sanctions against Moscow, in a move that some European officials said was an attempt to promote US liquefied natural gas exports to Europe by limiting Russian supplies. 

“The principle of American sanctions [being levied] on a project that is not in the US, that does not involve US actors, that is not in dollars — the Europeans are right to mobilise on this subject,” said Ms Kocher. “It is an interference in the affairs of European countries that is unacceptable.” 

The Senate bill still needs the support of the House of Representatives. The proposed opposition to Nord Stream 2 would align the US with some eastern European states opposed to the pipeline. These states say it will increase energy reliance on Russia and be used by the Kremlin as a political tool to hurt Ukraine, which hosts existing gas pipelines between the country and the EU......................
