Kissinger and Tillerson worked together at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
Tillerson also worked for years as CEO of Exxon Mobil.
Earlier this week it was reported that Exxon Mobil's profits had halved to just $7 billion.
Russia's treasury is also beginning to diminish due to sanctions over Ukraine.
Tillerson engineered an agreement for Exxon Mobil to exploit Russia's arctic region.
Obama stopped that exploitation when he slapped sanctions on Russia over Ukraine.
Tillerson, Trump, Kissinger, Exxon Mobil and Putin would like those sanctions lifted so that Exxon Mobil can start to exploit Russia's arctic, fill Russia's treasury and drive a wedge between Russia and China.
Bannon sees a war with China in the next year or two.
Not coincidentally just as Tillerson is given the keys? The champagne flows in Moscow and Mar a Lago tonight, boys, the *good* shit https://t.co/UiC5U1XvBh— Xeni Jardin (@xeni) 1 February 2017
