Report from Moscow: Cold War, World War III unlikely, but Russian experts disagree on Putin's foreign-policy plan | Trudy Rubin

His eagerness to pull U.S. troops out of northeast Syria before the job is done imitates Obama's premature Iraq exit that brought us ISIS.



Trump is suffering from a bad case of autocrat envy | Trudy Rubin
Trump's fondness for autocrats, who are flourishing worldwide, syncs with polls that show growing U.S. public desire for "strong leaders"



What killer fire in Kemerovo tells us about Russia and Putin | Trudy Rubin
Scores of Russian kids died in a mall cinema fire due to official malfeasance, but Putin never meets with the families. Yet his popularity still soars.



What H.R. McMaster's exit and John Bolton's arrival mean for the next three dangerous months | Trudy Rubin
Trump's pick of John Bolton for new national security adviser, plus Mike Pompeo at State Dept. hikes chance of conflict over Iran and North Korea this spring.
