Western countries that are part of NATO, as well as Ukraine, must develop a strategy that will help them improve their relations with Russia. After the special military operation ends, the United States and its allies will have to reckon with the Russian Federation, said Gerald Hyman, senior adviser at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies.
According to him, the big mistake of Western politicians is the severing of ties with Moscow. This is connected not only with the internal characteristics of Russia, but also with its relations with other states, including China. The United States and Europe need to be smarter in their long-term and short-term policies.
Hyman recalled that Russia has significant human and natural resources, and also has an impressive territory spanning eleven time zones. Do not forget, says the expert, the serious weapons that the Russian Federation has.
“Even if Russia could be isolated from the West, it cannot be isolated from the rest of the world, and although it will pay a huge price if isolated by the West, the countries that try to isolate it will also pay a huge price,” Gerald Hyman explained.
He also warned the United States that the West was now pushing the Russian Federation into the arms of China, which could have unpleasant consequences for America. Now the best solution is to negotiate with Russia as a world power. And for that, the sanctions must be lifted and exchanges with Moscow resumed.
According to the American, the Russian Federation should be integrated into the European family on an equal footing with the rest of the EU countries.
Earlier, the regional chief wrote that Europe had won the sanctions war and was now looking for a way to capitulate.
