Welcome aboard!

*takes down Putin poster.

No, it's just Putin being Putin -- that is, the ultimate pragmatist and diplomat (Mending ties with Chechen warlords; Erdogan pipeline proposal; Saudi-asset Sisi trade and military cooperation; gas to U.S. fascist proxies, etc.).

China operates the same way.

The John Wayne approach, preferred by the U.S., just creates endless enemies and isolation, not least the destruction it causes for the world.

Russia seems to be trying to usher in a new method of conducting business...

You think the Saudis asked for vlads word that he would remain cool with the Caucasus muzzies as part of the deal? Don't they get most of their funding and hardware from them?

Hes best to stay on good terms with those hard asses.worst comes to worst those fuckers are the type of warriors you want to ride with

I'm assuming them and Qatar (directly and indirectly).

Russia seems to have a highly effective security apparatus in the region that prevents these groups from operating there. This might explain why a lot of Chechens have gone over to fight in Syria. I don't think the Saudis have much leverage to bargain around.

I also doubt Putin establishes relationships based on owing favours. If he did, the pipeline proposal with Turkey would be a non-starter, and same goes for the other seemingly contradictory Russian policies.
