For most of 2018, it was conventional wisdom among Russia experts to say, knowingly, that Moscow was disappointed and more than a bit perplexed by Donald Trump. Russia wants acceptance of its annexation of Crimea and recognition of its security primacy over Ukraine and Russia’s western border region, but it hasn’t gotten any of that. Russia would also like to see an end to economic sanctions imposed over Ukraine; however, thanks to the U.S. Congress, it’s now subject to more sanctions. More broadly, Russia seeks recognition — in Syria, in Europe, and globally — of its status as a top-tier power alongside Washington and Beijing. Instead, Putin is endlessly linked to Trump’s clownish behavior on the world stage and disdain for democracy, while China’s President Xi gets to pose as the defender of norms and international cooperation.
