The U.S. President Barac Obama believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s, which serve as a severe tension factor worldwide, can be dangerous for Russia in the long run, although he may become a short term prominent political figure in his country.
At the interview with “The Economist” Obama mentioned that Russia has always had a Janus-like quality, both looking East and West.
In Obama’s opinion, Russia doesn’t make anything to improve the live conditions of its citizens. Immigrants aren’t rushing to Moscow in search of new opportunities. The life expectancy of the Russian male is around 60 years old. The population is shrinking. And so, the USA has to respond with resolve in what are effectively regional challenges that Russia presents, mentioned the U.S. President Barak Obama.
