Road Map of Trump’s Government towards Russia

Russia’s question has always been one of the pivotal disputes in the USA’s foreign policy, but there has not been a single approach to this issue among American leaders and parties. Accordingly, the history of the relations between Washington and Moscow since the downfall of Soviet Union has witnessed a periodic sinuous movement alternating between heightened tension (i.e. cold war) and detente. As a result, in the last periods of Barack Obama’s presidency and especially after the crisis of Ukraine, it seemed that due to more than two decades of various relationships between Russia and America, this time the relationship between the two countries was doomed to an irreversible course toward cold war. But Donald Trump’s taking over the presidency in Washington by using "the Normalization of Relationships with Moscow” as his motto changed the circumstances and increased the probability of beginning another period of détente between the USA and Russia. Be that as it may, the repetition of sinuous movement in the relationship between the two countries has many critics especially in the USA. One of the most serious criticisms that the opponents of Donald Trump express is that the adoption of a reconciliatory policy towards Russia once again helps it revitalize its power, Russia’s demands on the USA for giving Russia its share in international equations will be increased and in the next term, the probable tension between the two countries will be more dangerous. For these reasons, now the issue of Russia has turned into a problem in the USA’s internal disputes. Despite the tolerant approach of Trump government towards Russia, there is a special resistance and resolution from the side of America’s governmental structure against anything that is registered to the interests of Russia. Intelligence, security and the media organizations inspect with the utmost care all relationships of the country’s new governmental staff with Russia at all levels.
