The U.S. president-elect is reportedly seeking abolition of anti-Russian sanctions on the "Kissinger's recommendation"
The U.S. president-elect Donald Trump brings a political heavyweight to his side. The legendary former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is positioning himself as a potential intermediary as Trump signals that he wants a more cooperative relationship with Moscow, German Bild reports according to Uatoday.
Kissinger is also the one to draw up a master plan for Ukraine.
The 93-year-old politician kept up warm relations with Vladimir Putin even as the United States and Russia grew further apart.
Kissinger is one of the few Americans who have met with Putin on regular basis, alongside Exxon's chief and Trump's candidate for the U.S. Department of State, Rex Tillerson, and Hollywood actor Steven Seagal.
Kissinger is clear about the future relations between the two nuclear superpowers.
He believes that rapprochement with Russia is the right move to position itself against the increasing militarization of China. A balance between America and Russia would strengthen global stability.
According to the analysis of Western European intelligence services, which refers to the information from the Trump team, the future U.S. president is also seeking the abolition of the Russian sanctions on the "Kissinger's recommendation".
Kissinger also recommends recognizing the dominance of Russia in the former Soviet republics of Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia and Kazakhstan. This means: The US politically confers Russia's space between Poland / Baltics and Iran, Afghanistan and China as a sphere of influence.
The long-time Putin confidant has also his plan for political and economic development of Ukraine. The core of the idea is that Russia guarantees the security of the eastern Ukraine, gradually withdrawing from there. The West, in return, does not interfere with the Crimean question.
The occupation of the Ukrainian peninsula is not officially recognized - but should not be an issue between Moscow and Washington, Kissinger recommends.
