Both leaders touched upon all the topics on the agenda: from fighting ISIS to the Ukraine. As expected, they did not touch on the theme of anti-Russian sanctions.
“The conversation Putin and trump met the expectations: passed with a plus sign, becoming a prologue to a personal meeting. Coordination in the fight against ISIS* – a qualitative shift,” – said a member of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Alexei Pushkov. We will remind, Vladimir Putin and Donald trump held a phone conversation on Saturday. The conversation lasted about 45 minutes and became the second since the election trump President of the United States and the first after his inauguration.

Now “, Kiev, Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn, Warsaw, Oslo, Stockholm, NATO, horrified by the results of the conversation Putin – trump. Preparing for “difficult times”, – said the Senator.
Putin and trump in a telephone conversation could touch on almost all relevant in today’s agenda, said the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev. He expressed the hope that lies behind the sincere desire of the American side to cooperate rather than compete. Thus, the conversation between the two leaders returned to “meaning and content” in the Russian-American dialogue, said Kosachev. He recalled that the dialogue with the Obama administration lost this sense, because the American partners sounded solid plates and stamps, this administration and fictional. Now the review of the Kremlin at the end of the conversation sustained in a cautiously positive tone, said the Senator. “Under the previous President of the United States such a comment would have to be just could not”, – concluded Kosachev.
Agreed, and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Fund ISAPI Dmitry Badovsky. “Even in the traditionally streamlined press releases at the end of the conversation felt a genuine mutual desire to bring the relations of the extremely sad state in which they found themselves under the Obama administration,” – quoted expert RIA “Novosti”.
From Mosul to Kiev
Recall, the press service of the Kremlin and the White house noted that the conversation took place in a positive and business-like manner, the parties intend to develop relations in a wide range of international issues. In particular, agreed to discuss the unification of efforts and coordination in the fight against international terror, namely ISIS and other groups in Syria. Putin in this connection has reminded Trump that Russia for over two centuries, supported by the United States, was an ally of Washington in two wars, and now considers the United States as a crucial partner in the fight against terror.
In the end, after a conversation with the Russian leader trump gave the Pentagon the order to develop a plan for combating ISIL, which will include a search for new allies for Washington. The Memorandum allows for the creation of a plan to destroy ISIS 30 days. The desire of Russia and the United States for a joint struggle can lead to the creation of a broad anti-terrorist coalition in Syria, said the head of the international Committee of the state Duma Leonid Slutsky.
In addition, Putin and trump discussed the situation in Ukraine. They agreed to establish cooperation on issues of the Ukrainian crisis and a number of other fronts, including the situation in the middle East, the Arab-Israeli conflict, Iran’s nuclear program, and the problem of North Korea.
“Vladimir Putin and Donald trump agreed to give the assignment to work out possible dates and venue of their personal meeting, – said the press service of the Kremlin. – Putin and trump has agreed to maintain personal contacts on a regular basis. They also stressed the importance of restoring trade and economic ties between the two countries to stimulate the development of bilateral relations”.
That conversation contributed to the overall dialogue of States, said at the White house. “That’s a good call was an important step in improving relations between the United States and Russia, which are in need of rehabilitation”, – said the press service of the trump.
As predicted yesterday, the newspaper OPINION, although on the eve of their conversation even has information about walking in the White house the project of the decree about removal of sanctions from Russia, it is clear that to talk about that the leaders will not. The issue of sanctions are now generally not important in relations between the two countries.
Sanctions did not concern tactical reasons
The leaders did not discuss the issue of sanctions, noted the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich.
“The presidents understand that this issue currently has no solution: its time has not yet come”, – said the Senator. In his opinion, any progress here it is necessary to wait only while achieving concrete and tangible results in our common fight against radical Islamic terror. “Today this is a key issue in determining the future development of Russian-American relations… it Seems that she made a bet trump,” – the politician said.
“But in the case of success in the fight against “Islamic state” the President of the United States have to overcome a powerful anti-Russian lobby in the country, in the camp of its allies,” warned the Senator. Earlier, some leaders of the U.S. Congress, in particular Senator John McCain, has promised to make particular laws to strengthen sanctions against Russia.
In spite of this, a member of the house of representatives of Congress, Republican Dana Rohrabacher is convinced that sanctions will not last long. “We will remove these sanctions and will build completely new relationships, fostering teamwork to achieve mutually beneficial goals,” he said to the Washington Examiner. The policy of the Obama administration was “continuing hostility and belligerence towards Russia, regardless of what that takes… I Hope that our President will cancel these sanctions and say to President Putin that we need to start with a clean slate,” said Rohrabacher.
He recalled that it was not Putin, and the West responsible for the events in Ukraine, as they “there overthrew a democratically elected government”. Now, the initiative of a number of colleagues advocating for tougher restrictive measures against Russia threaten with “reality creation”, where both countries will become regular opponents. However, in this political battle, the advantage is on the side of trump, I’m sure the Congressman.
