Gilboa noted that the reduction of tensions between the parties will be done in three stages, including practical practical cooperation, a new agreement to restrict nuclear weapons and on the basis of the understanding that Putin will not change his policy regarding human rights.
According to him, the relations between the countries knew a period of depression and therefore it would be possible to reach a “cold normalization”. He added that “no one expected a breakthrough, or a sudden display of miraculous friendship.” However, he believed that Putin might moderate cyberattacks and seek a reduction in sanctions.
