Senior researcher of the Atlantic Council Anders Aslund, considered one of the most militant critics of the Kremlin and several researchers called "the architect of wild capitalism" in Russia, was unexpectedly named the President of the Russian Federation V. V. Putin " star G20 ".
Aslund summit in Ankara said that the Russian President not only made a smart move in a part of the proposal on the restructuring of Ukrainian debt, but also became a "star" meetings, skillfully shifting the vector of interest of the West from Ukraine to Syria. About this researcher writes in the publication " Putin from the single, which insists, became a star of the G20 ", RIA " Novosti ".

In addition, the scientist reminds that the Russian Federation demands and guarantees of the European and American partners. Anyway, He calls the move by the President of the Russian Federation " very smart ". As a policy of " stubborn evading negotiations ", He was replaced by a policy of openness to negotiations - and " again became a star at the conference of the G20 ".
