“Russia is never friends“ against ”anyone, building relations only on equal terms and mutual respect. We do not accept the principles that are preached in Brussels and Washington, based on the creation of various blocs and sanctions instead of cooperation. ” Sergei Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, said this.
“Following the logic of Mr. Borrell, who verbally recognizes the multipolarity of the modern world, the desire of Russia and China to strengthen technical independence is dangerous and is directed against Europe and the United States. Our Western partners are driving themselves into a corner, frightening everyone with a non-existent threat in the form of Russian-Chinese friendship, instead of confronting real challenges and problems together with Russia and China.
We noticed long ago that in Brussels and Washington they interpret democratic values in a very peculiar way and consider gross interference in the internal affairs of sovereign countries to be the norm. And if these countries show resistance and declare the priority of national interests, they are immediately included in the list of “enemies” against which the guardians of Western democracy are waging a hybrid war, ”the politician said.
He emphasized: “One gets the impression that autocrats have long been settled in the bureaucratic offices of Brussels and Washington, issuing methods of pressure, political blackmail and sanctions as a form of protecting democracy. This blatant deception of the world community is already obvious.
Russia does not want confrontation with other states, I am convinced that China does not want this either. We work with other countries for effective, sustainable development and strengthening the security of the surrounding world. Brussels and Washington should not look for a black cat in a dark room, it is not there. “
