Bloomberg: Putin demonstrates his might, as Trump isolates US
US President Donald Trump has withdrawn the United States from multipartite agreements, distanced his country from the leading role in geopolitical hotspots, as well as 'crossing fences' with allies. The US policy helped Russia strengthen the alliance with China and its influence in the Middle East and Africa.
Bloomberg reports that Donald Trump has faced the situation when his opponents' list from the former allies impresses with its size. According to surveys, Joe Biden is leading in public polls.
Due to the surge in coronavirus infection incidence in the United States, EU countries suspend entry for American citizens after opening borders. Journalists also recall that the United States and China have problems with the trade deal. Beijing urges global shippers of meat and soybeans to advocate that their shipments comply with the safety standard and are not infected with the coronavirus. But American exporters are refraining from this step for fear of liability.
Against the backdrop of problems in the United States, Russian President Vladimir Putin' parades his might,' the journalists say.
There was a big message nonetheless in the display of Russia's might in a parade to mark the 75th anniversary of the World War II defeat of Nazi Germany. It came ahead of a July 1 referendum that may open the way for Putin to rule until 2036, Bloomberg said.
