Bits and Pieces - Russia Edition

Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev arrives in the United States tomorrow. Here's some of the anticipatory coverage. I don't agree with every word of every article, but each has some good points.

John Kerry: The merits of a Russian relationship

Peter Baker in the NYT: Obama Aims to Build Economic Ties With Russia. And the converse, I would suspect.

The Guardian: Russia cuts gas supplies to Belarus by 60%. The gas war is still in progress between Russia and former Soviet republics. At least it's summer.

The Moscow Times: Reviving the OSCE Iran Against U.S. Peacekeeping Role In Karabakh. Russia is working with the United States to help Armenia and Azerbaijan to settle their dispute, and Iran doesn't like it.
