The surprising decision by President Donald J. Trump to leave the Kurds and sign the Turkish operation in Syria was condemned in the West, but cheerfully received in Russia, and for those who follow Russia closely, the contrast revived Ghosts of Helsinki, where Trump's transfer of American values was fully flaunted.
There last year, the leader of the world's most powerful country in Finland demonstrated a worthy service to Vladimir Putin, the president of a rogue government sanctioned by the West, with a large number of malicious activities, including Russia's blatant interference in the US election.
The pariah of the world looked triumphant beside the emptied American president. When Trump stood there, his face blank, Putin shone, and he wanted the world to know how great the meeting was for Russia. Putin held up a thick pile of his notes with both hands and showed them to the world to see.
Recognizable parts of the first page, which were purposely written in unusually large font, contained references to Putin's request that Russia's former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, and also the British businessman Bill Browder under the 1
For public consumption, the manuscript of the Russian President mentioned "Joint Humanitarian Operations with the aim of creating conditions for the return of refugees. "Local reality tends to produce – not to disperse – the flood of refugees who were essentially armed by Russia and Syria to destabilize Europe.
On Wednesday of this week, President Trump nonchalantly remarked that if the thousands of ISIS prisoners currently held by US-backed Kurdish forces are "going to flee to Europe." Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also threatens Europe with a flood of refugees and publicly declares: "We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees on their way."
The mystery surrounds the rest of the President of the United States States discussed issues with the Russian leader in Helsinki, as President Trump confiscated the notes of the American interpreter and is still tense about his exchange with Vladimir Putin. But one thing is clear: Trump goes along Putin's wish list and fulfills the goals of the Kremlin at a rapid pace. He rejects US sanctions against Russia, exacerbates America's internal divisions based on race, belief, sexual orientation and political affiliation, undermines confidence in our elections, intelligence services and institutions, while strengthening our foreign adversaries and undermining NATO alliances ,
" Even Russian experts are amazed at the damage Trump purposely inflicts. " Conspiracy theories the Kremlin has spread for years. The Russians have for a long time been supportive of the ideas that prompted President Trump's outrageous demands on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and ultimately led to the impeachment process.
The overthrow of Marie Yovanovitch, the former ambassador to Ukraine, also met the wishes of the Kremlin. She stood up for the interests of Ukraine and resisted the aggressive attitude of Russia towards Donbas. The Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk, a close ally of Russia's Vladimir Putin, who is the godfather of Medvedchuk's daughter, has a longstanding grudge against Ambassador Yovanovitch. Medvedchuk cheered that the US Ambassador would be recalled, and Russian state media predicted that Ambassador Yovanovitch would be Trump's "first victim in Ukraine."
Russia's fingerprints seem to appear in any controversial foreign policy decision by President Trump. Prior to Turkey's continuing offensive against the Kurds, Turkish President Erdogan met with his Russian and Iranian counterparts and made "important decisions".
All three leaders avoided giving details of the talks. Russian state media proudly boasted that Erdogan had received Putin's approval for the Turkish offensive in northern Syria before speaking to Trump. Vladimir Soloviev, presenter of the night program The evening with Vladimir Soloviev on Russian state television, said that the Turkish president had carried out his plans by his Russian counterpart and secured his consent in his personal exchange.
Soloviev sarcastically added that Erdogan was "not so sensitive" to the President of the United States, implying that the American President was only informed about the dealings already closed by Turkey, Russia and Iran.  There is talk in the Russian state media that Trump's actions have proved what Russia has been saying for years: "Americans can not be trusted." Evgeny Poddubny, military correspondent for Russian state broadcaster 1 (VGTRK), said that Kurds, after being "stabbed in the back" by the Americans, nowhere else but to turn to Russia. Now that the US seems to be giving up its influence in the Middle East, Russia willingly goes nowhere and offers to facilitate negotiations between the Kurds and the Assad regime.
" I never thought I would experience that … Washington is doing everything possible to destroy the foundations of the transatlantic alliance and unity. "
– Tatyana Parkhalina, Association for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation
Even Russian experts are amazed at the damage Trump purposely inflicts. Tatjana Parkhalina, president of the Association for Euro-Atlantic Cooperation, said in the Russian state television show 60 minutes last year, as if she were incredulous : "I never thought that I would do it live to see this – not the USSR or Russia, who have tried many times to drive the wedge between transatlantic allies, but Washington is doing everything possible to destroy the foundations of the transatlantic alliance and unity. "Last year, the idea of US withdrawal from Syria too good to be true. Now the ambitions of the Kremlin come to fruition.
Experts and experts who appeared on the nightly television show with Vladimir Soloviev agreed that anti-American analysts could not even dream of a situation in which the screen of American influence in Syria would be withdrawn. They speculated that China would take advantage of this situation and get more involved in the Middle East.
Semyon Bagdasarov, director of the Moscow Center for Middle East and Central Asian Studies, claimed he would consider President Trump a traitor if he served in the United States Armed Forces. Bagdasarov was blunt: "Trump is a traitor to the American people." Host Vladimir Soloviev intervened: "Then you should support him … If it is bad for America, you should support him." Russian expert Vladimir Avatkov added: "Let's hope this will cause Turkey to leave NATO. Let's hope this happens. "In the same show, the analyst Dmitry Drobnitsky suggested:" Here is the multipolar world … We are witnessing the beginning of a new era. "
