According to the Minister, quoted by “Interfax” on the basis of the budget report of the war Department, before the Committee on armed services of the house of representatives, Mattis sees “no evidence that Mr. Putin wants good relations with us. But this does not mean that we cannot be points of contact”.

According to the head of the Pentagon, Russia has chosen a “strategic competition” with the United States, and the military cooperation of the two countries is now reduced mainly to prevent clashes in Syria, while the “serious interaction” between them can not be.

Recall that in an interview with the American Director Oliver stone, Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the US of supporting terrorism in Chechnya during the war in the region, he said, “the American partners were talking about the support of Russia, about the need for cooperation fighting terrorism, and in fact used these terrorists to drive the internal political situation in Russia.”

At the same time Russia, Putin said, supposedly has evidence of such support that the United States itself explain the contacts with all political forces of the Russian Federation. Specific examples of Putin in this case abstained.
