    Putin needs to accept new rules of the game
    With the election of US President Donald Trump, the rules of the geopolitical game have changed, and the phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin on May 2 shows just that. There's a new bully-in-chief on the block, and there might not be room for two of them.
