When speak about actions of Russia in the current opposition with the West, for their characteristic is more often than others the word "asymmetric" is used. And by results of the last years this word is even more often used by the western experts and media with aspiration in which fear and admiration are mixed. Moscow over and over again manages to find unexpected (and even witty) the courses which are painful for the West but turn around in benefit for Russia.© AFP 2017/Fabrice Coffrini are disappointed In the Ministry of Sports with the decision of the congress IAAF to prolong discharge Vflasituation especially isn't trivial, considering that from the very beginning the main rate has been made that Russia depends on the West far stronger, than he on her. As a result the Kremlin was put again and again in position when he, appear, just had no options of reciprocal actions which wouldn't cause far bigger damage to him. However over and over again — since input of food embargo and finishing with recent reduction of the staff of the American Embassy — Moscow safely found way out of deadlocks into which it was driven.

Solution of the problem is assigned to the same Russian sports officials who and have brought in due time a situation to a present state. It is no wonder that their achievements in the current situation at least don't impress. It, in turn, forces people to ask a question: where does watch the Kremlin?
