Stagnation as strategy evident in Tillerson’s trip to Moscow
"The odds for any kind of breakthrough from US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Russia were vanishingly low from the first. As it was, the political process proved as gridlocked at Moscow’s streets, as highway after highway was closed to accommodate VIP motorcades.

Addressing that on a fundamental level will naturally undermine the Zemans of this world, " writes Mark Galeotti in his article for bne IntelliNews regarding Zeman's confirmation to compete again in the 2018 presidental elections.
