The ongoing tensions between Moscow and Washington have not reduced even when the two world leaders Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin had a discussion related to the ongoing Ukraine crisis. Biden warned of strict and severe repercussions on Russia if the latter advance military action against Ukraine. Moscow is reluctant to make any changes and Putin is adamant to make advance on Kiev to assert his dominance. The talks seem to be inconclusive and tensions have not been resolved. The question is why the US is not able to asset its dominance on Russia? Analyst says that Biden is not a credible president who can assert his stance like earlier ones. Biden’s administration disaster in Afghanistan is still new and world leaders saw it as weakness of decision making abilities. Russia is now not afraid of US sanctions until it garners similar response from Europe. However, Geo-economic Politics is now more important in current world order. Countries like Germany will not go against Russia due to their billion dollars Nord Stream deal. This leaves USA and Biden with very few friends who can support his tough stance against Russia. Even countries like India have been neutral on the issue. All this seems to be giving more power to Putin to assert his stance and possibly invade Ukraine.
