On July 11, the State Duma held parliamentary hearings on “Ensuring strategic stability in the context of a changing global security architecture: a parliamentary dimension”. They were organized by the International Affairs Committee.
The Chairman of the Committee, Leonid Slutsky, opening the event, noted that the United States of America is currently playing the main destructive role in the field of global security. At the same time, he stressed that the main thing now is to work on reducing the military threat.
“We all understand how dangerous the Third World War is, and now the main thing is to work to prevent the realization of its threat, as well as to solve problems in the field of strategic stability, which has not yet increased. The United States now plays a major destructive role in the field of international security, ”said the parliamentarian.
In turn, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov called on the American side to engage in direct dialogue with the Russian side to understand mutual intentions.
“High-ranking American military men are arguing about some hypothetical US response to a possible limited nuclear strike by Russia, including on American territory. One can only guess why the US military voiced such absolutely unrealistic scenarios that have nothing to do with the military doctrine of the Russian Federation, ”he said.
“It is necessary for our experts, first of all military, to closely engage in the discussion of doctrinal topics. Here, as nowhere else, it is necessary to understand the real views and intentions of each of the parties, ”said Sergey Ryabkov.
