The stakes have never been higher than in the rising tensions between the United States and Russia than they are right now, with diplomatic communications between the two super powers dangerously absent, with the war in Syria, where the two nations are fighting on opposite sides, serving as the fuse.
The United States suspended all talks with Russia in regards to Syria on October 3, diplomatic talks that had been ongoing for months. John Kerry, U.S. Secretary of State, accused the Russian government of voiding the ceasefire agreement in place in order to bring humanitarian aid to war-torn Aleppo residents and other Syrian civilians devastated by the ongoing war there, calling for both the Russian and Syrian governments to be investigated for war crimes for ignoring the ceasefire.

In the meantime, the U.S. military was using that same ceasefire to send new arms to the Syrian rebels.
Gorbachev, who led the U.S.S.R. From 1985 to its collapse in 1991 has rarely been outspoken about politics or world relations since that time, did warn both the Kremlin and the West that a new Cold War was on the verge of happening again in 2014 with the then breakdown in relations between the two nations, faulting the United States’ “triumphalism.”
