No US-Russia Cold War Despite 'Vigorous Disagreements': White House

The tense relationship between the US and Russia cannot be characterized as a new cold war, even though they have “some vigorous disagreements” over Ukrainia and Syria, the White House stated.

"The situation today is much different" as Russia "does not have the same kind of influence around the globe that the Soviet Union once did," said White House spokesman Josh Earnest at the daily briefing yesterday.

He was responding to questions about American and South Korean fighter jets intercepting Russian bombers flying near the US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan in the Sea of Japan earlier this week.

“The encounter took place when the US conducted a military exercise with South Korea in "international waters" off the Korean Peninsula,” said the spokesman.
