The Big Chill: The Alarming Decline In US-Russian Relations

featuring Michael McFaulvia Financial Times
Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Soviet-era jokes are fashion¬able once again in Russia. Thus: a man walks into the headquarters of the Federal Security Service — the FSB, successor to the KGB — and says, “My pet parrot is missing.” An agent responds, “Why are you wasting my time? Complain to the police or animal control!” Man adds hastily, “Sorry, I told them already. I’m informing you because, if they find my parrot, I want you to know that I do not agree with its view of President Vladimir Putin”.

Many now agree – it’s Cold War 2.0. U.S. President Donald Trump has gone a step further, tweeting last month that “Our relationship with Russia is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War.”
