The head of the Pentagon believes that the cause is the desire of Putin to weaken the U.S. influence on world politics.
The outgoing head of the Pentagon Ashton Carter said that the desire of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to weaken the U.S. influence on world politics prevents Washington and Moscow to find common interests.
He stated this in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, published on Friday, January 6th.
According to Carter, Putin allegedly determines the success of its policy on the “degree of discomfort” generated by them to other countries. “That’s what makes bridges such a difficult task,” he added.
The Pentagon also said that Russia’s military campaign in Syria, presumably, was sent to fight with the “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia), and with the moderate opposition.
