The past few months have seen world power matrix complications manifest itself through Russia and United States relations. For one reason or the other, Americans seem unable to move their hands off Russia.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has become the centre of attraction. Americans want to blame him for everything. First they said he helped rig elections in favour of trump. Thereafter, every day there is an accusation of this and that US official having been in touch with Russia.
In the final analysis, Russia has become more powerful and a serious threat to US’s purported world power status. Russia has certainly turned around its fortunes and has become too difficult to ignore. Every day the US sleeps with one eye open over Russia.
