Former National Security Council official for Russian and European affairs Fiona Hill during Sunday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press” called last week’s summit with President Biden a “very consequential win” for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Hill testified during former President Donald Trump in his first impeachment tribulation. Hill verbalized, “In terms of the symbolism of having a sit-down with the American president, absolutely, that is a very consequential win for Putin But it’s not a acquire victory if nothing transpires out of it. That is just an episodic event, and you know he can’t take that to the bank for a long time and cash it in. He’s got to rudimentally present himself at home as the great statesman because he himself has to subject his presidency to a reelection.”
She integrated, “So Putin has got to decipher how to navigate things, he can’t just fundamentally live off an episodic meeting with the United States president in Geneva for months to come. So he has got to show something out of it. The quandary with the antecedent administration, with President Trump, for Vladimir Putin is fantastic meetings from his perspective. He was able to push all of our political buttons — ridicule us, mortify us, always have sit-downs that he wanted to or telephone calls, but he never got any kinds of acquiescents. And so that genuinely, you ken, wasn’t all that worthwhile. So he has to get something out of this as well.”
