РОССИЙСКО-АМЕРИКАНСКАЯ ХОЛОДНАЯ ВОЙНА № 1 И ХОЛОДНАЯ ВОЙНА № 2: РОЛЬ ДИПЛОМАТИИ.
The relations between Russia and America are experiencing presently the deepest (at least since the end of the Cold War) crisis. The Russian-American dialogue on arms control is in decline, contacts between the two countries at the highest and high political levels have sharply decreased, and the inter-parliamentary dialogue is almost completely curtailed; under the yoke of American sanctions and Russian counter-sanctions, trade and economic ties between the United States and Russia are already deteriorating. The only way out in the current situation in Russian – American relations is to reduce the ideological component in Russian-American relations and, accordingly, increase the share of realpolitik in these relations. It should be noted that Moscow and Washington had to solve a similar problem during the Cold War. It is these ideological processes that made the Soviet-American détente possible. As long as similar processes do not occur in modern Washington, the ideological factor will remain a strong irritant in Russian-American relations.
