Zbigniew Brzezinski: ''Putin suffers from delusions of grandeur''

Publication time: 5 April 2012, 13:47
The CBS, which has taken an interview with Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser under former US President Jimmy Carter, reports about news developments in US-Russian relations.

"Brzezinski said that negotiating on missile defense is currently the biggest obstacle between the countries. He said the deep division on that issue is a reflection of long-held suspicion of the US in the Russian psyche - a "residual resentment" that he says could worsen when Vladmir Putin takes over as president in May.

Putin, he warns, is driven by "personal obsessions" rooted in the past. Brzezinski pointed out that the incoming president is still hoping to establish a "Eurasian Union," which would recreate the boundaries of former Soviet republics.

"He's clearly driven by nostalgia for the past and the (Soviet) super-national status", he said.

Meanwhile, the English website of The Voice of America, which is read also by non-Obama Americans and therefore it is not so one-sided and controversial as Russian one which seems to be personally moderated by Obama's resetter ambassador in Moscow, McFaul, reported about the KGB tapping the US Embassy in Moscow because the Moscow KGB TV station NTV knows in advance where and when McFaul appears: 

"The Kremlin has worked long and hard to tap into communications from the embassy. In the mid-1970s, American embassy officials did not believe that interest in historic preservation prompted Soviet authorities to renovate an early 18th century church with a bell tower that rose above the walls of the U.S. Embassy compound (see photo).

Built in 1732, the belltower at Nine Martyrs Orthodox Church was converted into offices and storage space after the Bolsheviks confiscated the church in 1929. Then, the church bells stopped ringing in the six story bell tower.

In the mid-1970s, Soviet officials restored the tower, prompting Americans working at the US Embassy across the street to call it "Our Lady of the Microphones." In 1992, the church was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church (it has never belonged to it, because the Russian Orthodox Church was created by Stalin only in 1943 - KC).

At that time, in 1975, Putin joined the KGB in Leningrad. His first job was to monitor foreigners and consular officials".
