The recent appointment of Michael McFaul as US ambassador to Russia was seen by many as Washington showing favor toward the opposition. In a frank conversation with RT McFaul asserted that the US does not finance either the opposition or Putin. Speaking about US anti-missile bases in Europe - a major stumbling block in Russia-US relations - McFaul explained that Russia's "obsession" with a legally binding guarantee is not "rational," but stressed that he sees a way forward through negotiations.
