White House press secretary Jane Psaki said that the new U.S. administration expects the results of the evaluation of intelligence steps of Russia in recent years. This was reported by TASS.
She said that in accordance with the provided data, the White House, together with U.S. President Joe Biden, will make a decision on building relations with the Russian side.
In addition, journalists asked the spokeswoman’s opinion on whether tensions around U.S.-Russia relations would increase. However, she did not give a specific answer.
“We think that certainly over the last few years [Russian President] Vladimir Putin and Kremlin officials have taken more troubling steps,” Psaki said.
Earlier, CIA nominee William Burns said that Russia is a weakening power, but urged not to underestimate its power.
