What Soured US-Russia Relations?

USA Russia

A historical view by Vladimir Putin (back to 1999).

At a press-conference after BRICS Summit in October 2016, Putin was asked a question:

– “Russian – American relations have suffered due to the Syrian situation?”

– “No way … Let’s recall what happened in Yugoslavia,” – said Putin. “That’s where the story begins … They don’t like independent points of view. That’s their problem …”

(“They” and “their” means American administration – my comment).
Watch, listen and read yourself the English transcript in the video.

BRICS is the acronym for an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
