The Kremlin will pose any progress in negotiations on Syria as readiness of the U.S. authorities to side with Russians in local conflicts, - Cato Institute’s Senior Fellow Andrei Illarionov

‘Any slightest agreement with Americans about joint actions in Aleppo will be treated by Russia as if the United States were ready to act jointly with Russia in all other areas – especially in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. Of course, it’s wrong. There are certain individuals among the U.S. leaders – in the incumbent government, and perhaps, in the next one, – who’d like to put Ukraine aside and to stop caring about it. Nonetheless, at least in the near five or six months, the current U.S. administration will not be ready for breaking ties with Ukraine; they have been regularly and consistently assisting Ukraine for the last 2.5 years, especially given the Russian aggression’. Andrei Illarionov, former counselor of Russian president Vladimir Putin and currently Cato Institute’s Senior Fellow in Washington, said this in an interview with Radio Liberty.

Previously, Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu claimed that Moscow and Washington are close to making a deal that would help solve the humanitarian crisis in Syria’s encircled and bombarded city of Aleppo.

Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for U.S. presidency, also surmised that the United States and Russia could join forces in struggling against global terrorism.
