I was looking for this interview transcript, having read it on the day it was issued but for some reason could not find it to include in my previous post – The United States is a Trouble Maker Not a Peace Broker. Russia is a Peace Broker., but heh, here it is, in all its revelatory glory, and so I now, with all due reverance, offer it to you as a guide to the current Russia-US thing.
There are those who say this is now all over and Russia won. Well. of course Russia won. Russia was never going to lose this clash of heads no matter what Washington said or did. But it is by no means over.
For a start, Russia now has to make her response – and no-one knows what that will be.
