Regarding Russia...

The United States(US) appears to be finally acknowledging the reality of the dangers posed by a pestering Russia, which in recent years, has tainted the decorum of international diplomacy via its blatant disregard of the rules and the respect of sovereignty and of  truthful negotiations through trust and integrity.

The decision by the US to end talks over Syria with Russia could be the beginning of a renewed US realization that Russia has not, and apparently, has no intention to ever play by civil rules of engagement. Moreover, the US revelation that Russia has hacked US electoral systems is sufficient evidence for Washington to raise the bar of consequences upon Vladimir Putin's Russia.

Russia has been busy agitating sovereign nations and their affairs for a number of years as it sought supposedly, to engage Washington in diplomatic negotiations on a host of global matters and concerns. After 2001, Russia offered the supposition of a true partner on a number of matters, including the war on terrorism and other matters. 

Yet, Moscow, over the same time period, aggravated and agitated the sovereignty of Georgia, Estonia, Ukraine as well as the Baltic and Nordic states. Russia also pestered Great Britain by flying war planes close to the British homeland.

Apart from sanctions imposed from meddling in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin has been able to agitate others at no cost to Russia. Syria has been a walk in the park for Putin despite the number of innocent children killed and the medical facilities bombed by Russian forces there.

However, Washington's new stance on Russia could be redefined so that each meddling act comes at a cost to Russia. With escalating costs, Russia's oligarchs could soon feel the impending economic pinch, thus forcing Vladimir Putin to behave more civil, genuinely cooperative and peaceful toward the serenity and stability of the entire globe.
