Very interesting Op-Ed in the New York Times today from Dmitri Trenin on US-Russian relations. " For Washington, Russia has fallen far down on the list of priorities. The Russian political and security establishment, by contrast, continues to be obsessed with the United States," Trenin wrote.
Such description is very accurate, and applies to several other countries around the world. Turkey, for instance, also believes that Washington is obsessed with Ankara and its "leadership role" in the Middle East, whereas the US in fact does not really think of Turkey as such a priority or an important player.
