Some thoughts on Russian foreign policy

A couple of thoughts from yesterday on the Syrian chemical weapons deal and what it says about Russian foreign policy. The first, here, was an instant take in the immediate aftermath of the Geneva press conference on what I think are the holes and problems with the deal. The second here is a profile I wrote not so much of Vladimir Putin but of Putin’s foreign policy.

Part of the problem, I think, is that there is so much attention in the US on Obama’s political difficulties that the other side of the story does not get looked at in the detail that it should – what Russia’s foreign policy goals and red lines are.

Finally this is a good brief summation by Donald Jensen of the key strands of Putin’s new foreign policy document published earlier this year.
