How Vladimir Putin is using Donald Trump to advance Russia's Goals

September 2nd 2016 - 13:00

Not since the beginning of the Cold War has a U.S. politician been as fervently pro-Russian as Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. Just four years after his predecessor Mitt Romney declared Russia to be Washington’s greatest geopolitical threat, Trump has praised President Vladimir Putin as a real leader, “unlike what we have in this country.”

Newsweek spoke with several experts, among others Alexander Klimburg about the matter. The whole article is available here.

Dr. Alexander Klimburg is Director of the GCSC Initiative and Secretariat, Director Cyber Policy and Resilience Program at The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies, and a former associate and former research fellow of the Science Technology and Public Policy Program and Cyber Security Project at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center. Dr. Klimburg is also a nonresident senior fellow with the Atlantic Council, and an associate fellow at the Austrian Institute of European and Security Policy.
