Leonid Slutsky: “Even one percent of the incident in the Kerch Strait does not pull on such a wave of global outrage”

Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs on the resolution of the US Senate and Theresa May’s request for new sanctions because of the incident in the Kerch Strait:

“We expected that before the G20 the condemnation of the incident in the Kerch Strait would reach an “ecumenical scale.” This can be seen from the adopted resolution of the US Senate, where the essence of the events has been turned upside down, and according to the requirements of the British Prime Minister Theresa May to impose new sanctions is another provocation comparable to the “Scripals case”, the goal of which is still the same – the maximum deformation of Russia’s image in the world on the eve of the largest international summit. This formula has already been tested both in Salisbury and Syria, when our “strategic friends” whether the situation was absolutely dislocated, fabricated by them themselves, and then inflated it by two or three orders and used to put a negative stigma on the country or person and make them non-armed in international space. All this is absolutely unreasonable and unworthy. The incident in the Kerch Strait even by one percent does not pull on the wave of the world perturbation, which artificially increased in the last few days before the G20 in Buenos Aires. This is obviously a mean-spirited and destructive method, especially considering that the fault of Ukraine in violating Russia’s territorial waters is not even taken into account and is not condemned.”
