Swift Discusses Upcoming U.S.-Russian Summit

28 June 2018 Washington Times News
Partner Christopher Swift was quoted in a Washington Times article, “’Looking forward to it’: Trump says he can succeed where others failed with Putin summit,” about the prospects for a successful U.S.-Russian summit later this month in Finland.

Swift said the Trump administration is making the same mistakes with respect to accommodating Russian President Vladimir Putin that previous administrations have made. He said every administration thinks it can do a better job with the Russians than its predecessor did, but that such early optimism always ends in disappointment.

“That’s because of Putin. It’s not because of us,” he said. “Republicans and Democrats have had the same problem for the last 20 years that Putin has been in power. It’s who the other side is.”
