Russians have been speaking in a conciliatory tone recently. Take Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov’s article published a few weeks ago in the magazine “Russia and Global Affairs.”

“We are not seeking confrontation with the United States, or the European Union, or NATO. On the contrary, Russia is open to the widest possible cooperation with its Western partners,” he wrote.

He argued Russia was misunderstood and still viewed in the now obsolete pre-WWII view of a totalitarian aggressor.
