Washington's Collusion with Russia

According to a recent press release from the Kremlin, we find the following:


Given that it's starting to look like the second edition of the McCarthy Era in Washington, it is interesting to see that, behind the scenes, there are hopeful signs that at least two of the three world superpowers/superpowers-in-waiting are co-operating when it comes to preventing yet another terrorist attack and loss of innocent life.

In case you were wondering, the Kazan Cathedral in St. Petersburg is an amazing piece of architecture as shown here:



It is also a magnet for both worshippers and tourists and, most certainly, a terrorist bomb would have resulted in very significant casualties and potentially serious damage to an important Russian icon.  In 2014, we spent few days in St. Petersburg.  On one of our visits to the cathedral while a service was taking place, we were ushered through metal detectors whereas, other times we were able to enter the premises unhindered.  Apparently, the Russian's have long suspected that the Kazan Cathedral is a potential target for terrorists. Despite Washington's ongoing anti-Russia rhetoric, some behind the scenes collusion may have saved some lives.
