The incidents when Russian SU-24 fighter jets buzzed the guided missile destroyer USS Donald Cook during the US’ joint exercises with Poland in the Baltic Sea was one of the most popular topics in the western media last week. American officials described these flight maneuvers as “unsafe”, “aggressive”, “reckless and provocative”. As for Russia’s domestic policy, the press has payed a lot of attention to the “Direct Line” with President Putin, which was designed to motivate local officials to increase the effectiveness of their work.
