For some reason, the Russians never got the memo. Russia opened Obama's second term by banning Americans from adopting Russian children. Moscow responded to Obama's decision to repair relations with Havana by sending a Russian military vessel to dock in the Cuban capital's port. Today alone, NATO has implicated Russia for complicity if not involvement in a new rocket attack on a Ukrainian city. This cheery development was compounded by the news that the FBI broke up a Russian spy ring in Manhattan that was seeking to infiltrate the American banking system. But it's not a new Cold War.
According to the FBI, Buraykov was an active participant in the spy ring that was charged with both collecting information and recruiting New York City residents to betray their country.'
