I met only the FSO, and in the last seconds a man with a mysterious suitcase got into the frame.
The general downward trend in the level of involvement in “high talks” demonstrates the actual disgust of diplomats.
As during the pre-war sports competitions in China, Putin is in constant solitude – he is not given either a solemn reception or a “strong handshake” sacred to diplomacy.
In fact, there is no one who would perceive Russia as an equal partner, and this is a direct result of Putin’s destructive activities.
He is seen either as a crazy enemy, or as an “unequal” partner – a resource base (India, China).
This is the result of the beginning of the war. Prior to this, Putin could count on an equal and respectful dialogue with representatives of the West and East.
The purpose of the war was to “redistribute the world order” in favor of the strategic dominance of the Russian Federation.
But the plan took a sharp turn in the wrong direction. And Kyiv became the “center” of geopolitics attraction.
