A former assistant to President Donald Trump, former director of the White House for Europe and Russia, Fiona Hill, advised US President-elect Joe Biden on relations with the Russian Federation.


According to her, the new American leader needs to avoid Barack Obama's mistakes.

Obama was very dismissive toward the Russians, calling them a regional power; they didn't want to think about Russia too much, she said. 

However, she noted that 'the world has changed completely,' and 'Biden can't do Obama 2.0.'

They are going to have to think differently, NYT quoted Hill.
