It is rather rare that an occasion comes up on which I comment on political issues directly (absent the prism of economics or finance). A rarer, yet, are the occasions when such comments involve a positive assessment of the power-broker or 'power elite' analysts contributions on the topic of the U.S.-Russia relations.
This is an occasion to do both. Here is an interview that is a must-watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=7&v=oiOrU5_JWao&utm_content=buffer011ee&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer.
In it, Matthew Rojansky, Director of the Wilson Center’s Kenan Institute, discusses US-Russia relations in the Trump-Putin era and makes several pivotal points, some of which I have raised before, but I have not heard being raised by an analyst who is, like Rojansky, is wired into Washington elite. At just over 5 minutes, is is a MUST-watch.
