The fact that the action coincided with the start of a popular vote on amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation makes us think about the motives for the actions of American diplomats. So the State Duma deputy, member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, director of the Institute of Russian Strategies (RUSSTRAT) Elena Panina commented on the decision of American diplomats to fly the flag of the LGBT community on the building of the US Embassy in Moscow.
“It is fundamentally important that such an action took place on the very day when a nationwide vote on constitutional amendments began, enshrining, in particular, the concept of marriage as a man and a woman,” Panina said.
According to the politician, this action is at the same time a slap to Trump, who expressed a negative attitude to such events, and an open challenge to Russia and Russian society, which shares the ideology of traditional values.
“The deep state of the United States, about which so much has been written and spoken about before, has made it clear to the Russian people that in any case it will not accept its choice, that it will rigidly and cynically impose on us its ideas about life, right down to its most intimate sides.
There was a lot of humor about this event, but you need to take it very seriously.
The executors of the fate of America, who do not put Trump on anything, want to be the arbiters of the fate of Russia as well. We must be ready to give an answer to this challenge, ”Panina stated.
