The increased interest of Central Europeans in Russian politics is a consequence of the rigid rules dictated by Washington on the European continent. This opinion was expressed in an interview with Duma TV by the first deputy chairman of the Committee on International Affairs, a deputy from the Communist Party faction Dmitry Novikov.
So the parliamentarian commented on the conclusion of experts from the US Analytical Center, who expressed concern about the positive perception of Russia by a number of Central European countries.
“The results of the survey, which demonstrate a certain increase in sympathy for Russia in the Central European states, are quite natural. It is due to the fact that generations are alive that have a deep historical experience of interacting with a Soviet country in past decades, ”said Novikov.
According to the deputy, the experience of interaction between Europe and the United States shows that there can be no talk of a full-fledged partnership.
“Washington is dictating more stringently new rules of the game on the European continent. All of this has consequences in the form of massive economic problems and a decline in the standard of living in a number of states, ”Novikov stressed.
Thus, according to the parliamentarian, these factors cause aversion of US policy and naturally increase interest in the line pursued by Russia.
“Therefore, I think that this trend, even with a very strong propaganda onslaught, will gain momentum,” concluded Dmitry Novikov.
