It will be a reset in US-Russian relations, no doubt now. Simply because US people voted for it. Don't take me wrong: Russia was the last thing they thought about when they went to vote. But the result is Cristal clear: There will be a reset in US dealing with the world. Unpredictable at times. Messy, quite frequently. But it will be a new, refreshing story, and it will affect Russia in this way.

“It is unlikely that the denunciation of the agreement on Iran's nuclear program will be a priority of the new US president. Mr. Trump, who has declared his readiness to talk Kim Jong-un out of possession of nuclear weapons, would more likely attempt to bargain with Tehran for more favorable terms and conditions. The problem is that neither President of Iran Hassan Rouhani, running for re-election in May 2017, nor the country’s Supreme Leader, confident that the deal was already tilted into US favor, would accept any further concessions”, – PIR Center “Russia and Nuclear Nonproliferation” Program Director Andrey Baklitskiy.

“We are facing the threat of the possible recurrence of purposely designed software breaking even through the “air wall”. In these circumstances we are concerned about what is being done about it, and how regulators, industry representatives, market, and, finally, international society are changing their approach to the recent developments” – PIR Center consultant Oleg Demidov.

“Considering the multifaceted nature of today's non-traditional threats, security goes beyond the capabilities of States. To combat these challenges, it is necessary to use not only intergovernmental mechanisms, but also to involve non-state actors”, – Chairman of the UN Secretary General's Advisory Board on Disarmament Matters, Head of Centre for Non-Traditional Security Studies at Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) Mely Caballero-Anthony.
