US-Russian summit ends with divisions and some hope

Friday, June 18, 2021

Significance

Putin ignored or rebuffed Biden's warnings on cyber threats and human rights, but progress was made on agreeing strategic stability talks.

Impacts

  • Biden's comment that Russia is "squeezed" by China hints at the far greater priority his team assigns to Beijing .
  • Russian ransomware attacks may increase as a deniable, asymmetric tactic
  • Moscow wants to engage on Afghanistan but has little to contribute, apart from not behaving disruptively.
