Maria Butina said that Putin extended a hand of friendship to the United States at a meeting of the Foreign Ministry collegium

Russian President Vladimir Putin, with his speech at an expanded meeting of the collegium of the Russian Foreign Ministry, once again extended a hand of friendship to the United States, but whether they are ready to accept it is a big question, Maria Butina, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, told RIA Novosti.

On Thursday, at an expanded meeting of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s collegium, Putin said that the Geneva summit opened up some opportunities for dialogue and gradual alignment and straightening of relations between the United States and Russia, noting that the most important thing is that both sides “consistently develop the agreements reached.”

“I think that once again, on our part – and we will continue in general – we are extending a hand of friendship for the United States. In my opinion, the president’s statement is very correct and verified in this regard, God forbid, there will be a war, there will be no winners in this war, that is, everyone will be losers. Of course, you need to make attempts and look for some joint ways of interaction, “Butina said.

“Another conversation is that, apparently, this will no longer be under the current government in the United States, because, as we know, even our own population continues to express distrust to Biden, his ratings are falling very much,” Butina said.

According to her, attempts to improve relations between the countries are needed, and Russia in this case is behaving like a smart player.

Commenting on Putin’s statement about the seizure of Russian diplomatic property by the United States, which contradicts civilized norms, Butina said: “It’s not about us, but about their domestic political games, where Russia is used as a bargaining chip. to hear, given that we are not to blame for this conflict, is a big question.”
