"Good police officer, bad police officer". The western press analyzes Pompeo's meeting with Putin


Donald Trump hopes to use results of Müller's investigation as a point of support for a turn of the relations with Russia. So about contacts of the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with the president Vladimir Putin in Sochi Mike Pompeo and Vladimir Putin writes The Washington Post to Sochi. Photo: Alexander Nemenov/Reuters Despite a number of statements of both parties for "positive steps" and "a subject conversation", foreign editions did not see a reality following the results of the first visit of Mike Pompeo to Russia as the Secretary of State. "Pompeo arrived to Putin to reboot the relations. They could agree only that it is impossible to agree" — The Washington Post writes. In material it is said that Trump repeatedly expressed the intention to improve the relations with Moscow, but could not make the desirable valid "under squalls of political wind". The newspaper notes, as Russia not too shows readiness for rapprochement: on the meeting devoted including to arms control, Vladimir Putin arrived after survey in Akhtubinsk of the hypersonic rockets capable to carry nuclear warheads. No more optimistically the western press estimates also Mike Pompeo's meeting with Sergey Lavrov. According to the publication Politico, diplomats "pobodatsya" on intervention in elections. In material it is specified that the Russian Foreign Minister intercepted the question on this subject asked Pompeo and performed with a six-minute tirade, having accused the USA of participation in "lion's share" of the attacks to the Russian Internet operators. Also the edition pays attention that Vladimir Putin called Müller's investigation "in general objective". Politico reminds that though the special prosecutor could not prove Trump's conspiracy with Moscow, in the report it is told about "large-scale and systematic" a campaign of intervention from Moscow. Trump's strategy in the Russian direction is analyzed by The Atlantic in article "As Trump Thinks that He Can Outwit Putin". In material it is said that against the background of strong statements of the advisers the head of the White House looks as "the heretic in own administration". According to magazine sources, Trump hopes to use strategy "the good police officer, the bad police officer": let Bolton and Pompeo make strong statements — so was, is and will be, and Trump will take care of that the relations on the top remained friendly. However, according to the edition, approach of the U.S. President risks "to work as a boomerang": allies of the USA will not know to whom to listen, and Putin — "definitely not the most naive player on the world scene" — can use Trump to get concessions for Moscow.
