Ashton Carter, who is leaving the post of head of the Pentagon, said that the United States could not improve relations with Russia solely because of President Vladimir Putin.
According to Carter, Putin assesses the effectiveness of his policies by the degree of discomfort he creates in the world. Separately, the outgoing official mentioned the Russian operation in Syria, which he considers unsuccessful. Carter believes that Russia has done nothing to fight the "Islamic State" (banned in Russia group), and is fighting against the Syrian opposition, which is fighting with Syrian President Bashar Assad.
