America’s strategy of interference in Eurasia

Since the time of President Harry S. Truman, the US has tried to prevent the emergence of an uncontrolled center of power in Eurasia, says Dmitry Suslov from the Moscow-based Council on Foreign and Defence Policy.

“After the Obama-Medvedev summit it has become clear that the US does not want to make any concessions to Russia on the post-Soviet space, neither in Georgia nor Ukraine. But still the message to these countries changed. Last year it was support of the anti-Russian policies. This year the Obama administration does not want Ukraine or Georgia to prevent the process of resetting Russia-US relations.”
