Russia is one of US’ key strategic partners – political scientist

Russia was one of the few mentions during President Obama’s State of the Union Address. Political analyst, Irina Kobrinskaya, thinks this is a sure sign that the US sees Russia as an important strategic partner.

Kobrinskaya thinks that the delay in the signing of the START treaty is merely a result of technical issues and not political. She also expressed belief that the US-Russia relations are heading for the better.

Pragmatic interests on both sides give us hope. This will not be a short improvement but a long-lasting development which will be for the good of security in the world,” Kobrinskaya said.
