This is very clearly read in every new attack on Russia by European officials. The EU has been demonstrating a complete lack of independence in developing its foreign policy for a very long time. ” This was stated by Sergei Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs.
The politician stressed: “The intensity of anti-Russian rhetoric is growing every day. The Russophobic West has apparently also become wary in connection with the strengthening of ties between Russia and China, which Washington openly calls the main threat. At the same time, there is no aggression or confrontation on the part of Russia and China against other peoples, this has already been repeatedly stated at the highest level in our countries. The concern of Western opponents is caused by a sense of loss of control over world processes, as well as in connection with the development of strategic allied relations between Moscow and Beijing. In addition, Western opponents are irritated by the strengthening of Russia’s role in resolving international issues, the success of our country’s peacekeeping mission, and the preservation of stability in the economy, despite the sanctions.
Our Western critics, by their policy of pressure and interference in the internal affairs of Russia and other sovereign countries, themselves provoke confrontation, stressing the collective security system. It is quite possible that in the near future we will face increased pressure from Western opponents on our partners, including the neighboring countries ”. The parliamentarian added that in Russia they do not identify European or American Russophobes with the peoples of Europe and the United States. “We continue to expect that objectively occurring global processes will demand a constructive approach and common sense from politicians in Europe and the United States,” Zheleznyak said.
