Elena Panina says Psaki’s return to the White House is alarming

The return of Jen Psaki to the team of the elected, according to preliminary data, US President Joe Biden was expected, but the fact that such people occupy high government posts in a nuclear superpower is naturally alarming, Elena Panina, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, told RIA Novosti.

Earlier, Biden’s headquarters said that the politician intends to appoint the former head of the press service of the State Department Psaki as the press secretary of the White House. According to a posting on the transition team’s website, only women will be appointed to key administration posts overseeing work with journalists.

In an interview with RIA Novosti, Panina noted that Psaki’s arguments about the “Belarusian sea” and the “Rostov mountains” were among the most famous curiosities and comic episodes of world politics.

“Her name has become a household name in many ways, has become a symbol of incompetence and ignorance. It only remains to hope that in four years Psaki had time to expand his horizons,” Panina said.

At the same time, according to the politician, there is a lot in common between Psaki and her future boss Biden: the boss, who confuses the names of politicians and even their relatives, and his press secretary “with zero knowledge of geography” may well complement each other …

The deputy noted, at first glance, it looks extremely comical.

“However, the fact that such characters occupy high government posts in the US, a nuclear superpower, is naturally alarming. Either it must be admitted that they are not able to occupy leading posts, or decisions for them will be made by completely different people who do not occupy official posts. the option is more likely “, – stated Panina.
