Interview with Dmitry Suslov

Dmitry Suslov, a political analyst, spoke about problems in Russia's international relations that Vladimir Putin is going to leave behind. He said that Russia's foreign relations will undergo changes only in response to the world's greatest powers.

“Russian foreign policy towards the UK and the US will not change, the policies of the US might change, especially if the Republican candidate John McCain becomes a president, with his idea of global alliance of democracy, of confrontation with Russia and China etc. Much will depend on British and America's ability to recognise Russia's recent change and to accept Russia's revisionism and Russia's unwillingness to play the game by the rules of 1990s and to accept Russia as an equal independent great power,” insisted Suslov.
