Putin improved Russia-U.S. relations: Henry Kissinger
Kissinger says Russia has to find a comfortable place for itself in a new environment.
“Russia has gone through tremendous dramas throughout its history, but particularly in the last 20 years when Russia has totally changed its governmental system and, in a way, lost many territories that used to be part of the Russian empire,” he says. “Putin took over as president in an extremely difficult situation and I have a very high regard for him.”
Kissinger believes that Russia and the U.S. will be strategic partners to a certain extent despite their disagreements.
