“Russia is not the most important country for Obama”

“Obama is pragmatic; he knows that Russia is not a threat to the US. His aim is to reduce the expenses which the US carries now protecting itself from Russia, a country that is actually no threat to the US,”

Dmitry Babich from the Russia Profile Magazine told RT.

He also added that, “The most important issue for US-Russia relations is their struggle for influence in the former-Soviet republics, while disarmament is now the issue number two.”

“Now, in Moscow, the presidents could create a certain capital of trust which will spare us from the repetition of something like the war in South Ossetia,” Babich concluded.
