Russia’s Relations With America Have Gone Back to Normal…

I had a comment that expressed the desire of hoping that Russia and America will not have a set back in their relationship over this spy issue. I have analyzed this situation from multiple angles and can not see any good that has come out of spy verses spy.

It had nothing to do with good or bad, right or wrong and spy verses spy. It had to do with the timing of the whole escapades and that was an intentional deliberation. It had to do with the fact that Obama made the decision to do what he did and it was a slap in the face to Medvedev…

At first I was thinking that Obama would not have done that. That he would have either made sure that the people were arrested before Medvedev came or wait until after he left and the G-8 and G20 were over. The fact that he choose how it came down has directed even my feelings on the issue. Building a relationship with Russia was important and a decade old case of a handful of dumb spies was not important. If these spies were so important why were they not picked up one, two, three or more years ago. They never ever came close to accomplishing anything of importance…

An example of change in thoughts comes from Mayor Yury of Moscow. Now many love the Moscow Mayor and then again many dislike him greatly. But I do know that he will say what is on his mind and that causes people to have issues with him…

Now the big news in Moscow is that they will help Vietnam build subways and Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov said, “For Moscow, Vietnam is the first priority compared to any other countries in terms of cooperation.”

So goes Moscow, goes Russia…

Take it how you want, but believe me after being here for almost 4 years. I know that he said this for a reason and that was not to convince Vietnam to get help doing a subway.  Mayor Yury Luzhkov is a powerful man in Russia and I have learned by watching, that what he expresses is thinking’s from the Kremlin. I have also picked up multiples of  changes in the way the news is presenting issues with America.

Many in Russia believe that looking West is degrading to the future of the country. Many believe that Russia should be concentrating on the surrounding and East side of the world.

Truth is, Relations With America Have Gone Back to Normal. This spy issue was just a reality check for Russia…

Lets hope they prove me wrong!

Windows to Russia!
