The completion of the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reshaped the contours of the political debate in the US. Republicans are arguing that Democrats portrayed US President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia as a fait accompli, even before the investigation was over, in an effort to discredit the US leader.

Therefore, the most far-sighted observers were wondering how the results of the Ukrainian elections will affect the West and its policies?
The twists and turns of political developments in the Middle East largely stem from the rivalry between Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey. While Iran seeks greater influence in countries with significant Shiite populations, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are sparring on one territory, both claiming leadership in the Sunni world: Turkey by “birthright,” and Saudi Arabia – by the “right of the strongest,” i.e. of the most economically advanced actor boasting the strongest army in the region.
In a series of recent comments in US and British media, their authors appear increasingly alarmed by the prospects of maintaining the unity of NATO and, on a broader scale, of the West as a whole.
