“The introduction of new sanctions by the US partners against Russia every time is surprising with its absurdity and absurdity of accusations. It is high time for our Western opponents to understand that no sanctions will force us to give up Russian Crimea, which became such by the will of its citizens, “said Sergei Zheleznyak, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, commenting on Canada’s sanctions against Russia in connection with the so-called annexation of Crimea in the West. “.
“On the one hand, the sanctions against two individuals and four companies suggest that the Canadian authorities had to somehow demonstrate to their“ big brother ”in the United States their readiness to support the anti-Russian campaign. On the other hand, it should be analyzed whether this anti-Russian maneuver is not a form of unfair competition, which Canada’s American neighbors are so fond of using, ”the politician noted.
According to Zheleznyak: “It is obvious that Canada’s unfriendly step does not contribute to the restoration of a trusting tone in our bilateral relations. Toronto always looks back to Washington in its foreign policy, especially when it comes to engaging with Russia. Unfortunately, with its anti-Russian attacks, Canada not only complicates the development of cooperation with our country, but also shows a lack of sovereignty in matters of foreign strategy, blindly singing along with the US authorities.”
