Moscow Times: Russia's PM Medvedev Says U.S.-Russia Relations ‘Worst in Memory’

U.S.-Russia relations are in the worst state that Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev can remember, he said Thursday, even though he believes President Donald Trump wants to improve them.

Well Russian personnel, military assets and intel are commonly killed, stolen or otherwise messed with. Russia has very little retaliatory capabilities, I would argue that on the world stage Russia is of very little interest for the US and its foreign policy.
