Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin conflict diplomacy, created for Newsbase oil and gas industry media service.

Following on from the Russian backing for President Assad in Syria as he puts rebel controled Syrian cities to the sword and quite possibily destabilising the whole Middle East region, relations cooled even more between the USA and Russia when fearing its borders were being challenged by NATO and the former Russian country looked for closer ties with the EU, the Crimea was annexed. As the situation in eastern sector continues to worsen, with pro-Russian rebels dying in the Odessa government buildings fire and the aircraft being shot down by rebels, relations between the two leaders continue to cool.

Since the editorial was created the situation in both countries have worsened with ISIS militants added to the mix in the Middle East and yet more sabre rattling in eastern Europe.
