The State Duma called a plan to destabilize Russia, announced by the American strategic research center, as a provocation and threat to the state, a REGNUM correspondent reported June 3.
“The plan to destabilize Russia, announced by the American strategic research center, is a full-scale project of a campaign against our country,” said Sergey Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs (United Russia).
The goal of such an informational attack, argues the parliamentarian, is pressure on citizens of the Russian Federation and the country’s leadership in the hope of changing the foreign policy line.
“Such publications and plans can be considered a direct threat to the state and the roughest provocation,” Zheleznyak is convinced.
Russia, of course, will take all necessary measures to protect national interests, including in the defense sphere, so that any plans to destabilize the country remain only wild fantasies of Russia’s opponents, Zheleznyak concluded.
The American corporation RAND, which serves as a strategic research center for the US government, presented a plan to destabilize Russia. In the document, analysts suggested that Washington should mainly put pressure on the Russian economy, first of all, strengthen trade and financial sanctions against the Russian Federation. The plan includes the economic isolation of Russia.
