Appearing in: New Powers and Fading Forces

"This presumption of American decline has been a serious mistake of Putin’s."

Malcolm  Rifkind is a renowned British politician who served in the cabinets of both Margaret Thatcher and John Major . Most recently he chaired the Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament, working closely with the CIA and MI6. A minister for eighteen years, he has seen longer uninterrupted service than anyone since the early nineteenth century.

He is currently banned from Russia by President Putin, for the robustness of his response against the Kremlin’s aggression in Ukraine. And he recently wrote on such topics, as well as the West's relationship with China, in a well-recieved article for the IAI.

"Malcolm Rifkind was in the top rank of twentieth-century politicians. Few saw events at closer quarters"  - John Major
