“The statement by the US president at a meeting with governors that Washington had some kind of“ super-fast ”missiles to confront Russia is Mr. Trump’s expected maneuver aimed at an internal audience. As we expected, in the remaining pre-election period, the owner of the Oval Office will focus on demonstrating power in the foreign political arena. It seems that so far this is just a warm-up. ” This opinion was expressed by a member of the State Duma committee on international affairs, Sergei Zheleznyak.
He stressed: “Our country has repeatedly stated that it does not intend to get involved in a military contest with the United States and thereby support the arms race. Russia fully ensures its own security and has everything necessary to protect sovereignty and territorial integrity. Most importantly, all this is not needed. The US leadership should be more responsible in broadcasting such provocative statements. ”
According to the politician: “We have already heard the victorious speech of the US president in Congress, in which Mr. Trump tried in every possible way to demonstrate to voters the growth of America’s power under his leadership. He again loudly declares an increase in military spending, announces his intention to land astronauts on the moon and even conquer Mars. But President Trump’s main “trick” in his declaration is to support the “color revolutions” in different countries, to sow American democracy, overthrow the “objectionable” US sovereign authorities and continue trade wars. Obviously, in the time remaining before the election, President Trump will not be able to win the hearts of the democrats, he will also not have time to make a super-leap in the economy, therefore he will seek the location of voters by “victories” in the external arena, talking about the incredible power of the American army. And in order to please the Russophobes among the political elite, especially the military-industrial lobby, it will justify the gigantic expenditures on armaments by the need to confront Russia. ”
