Whoever wins Tuesday's presidential election will face an assertive, aggrieved Russia whose risk-taking behavior under President Vladimir Putin is increasingly worrisome to American experts.The next president must assess how to alter Russian behavior, without direct military confrontation. Is that best done by cutting deals with Putin, as Donald Trump suggests? Putin, the ex-KGB officer, is turning the tools of covert subversion and information operations developed during the Cold War back against the United States.The word is often used to describe the behavior of the corrupt oligarchs who have prospered in Putin's Russia.Putin himself displays an unusual combination of personal traits.Like Putin, they are Cold War veterans with a sense of grievance against America.Clinton's tougher stance sounds like a better way to protect U.S. interests, so long as she doesn't make Putin feel humiliated or backed into a corner. This Russia is weaker than it looks, but it has been wounded by recent history and is all too ready to lash out.
