Leonid Slutsky: “Biden, declaring that the Russian economy relies solely on nuclear weapons and oil, is either strongly mistaken, moreover in the spirit of his predecessor Obama, or is trying to shift the focus of attention and reduce the degree of criticism of opponents for the deal with Merkel on Nord Stream 2 “. Both will definitely not benefit Russian-American relations, especially in light of his other statements about Moscow’s alleged interference in the upcoming midterm American elections.
The current US president, apparently, intends to continue to use the anti-Russian card with a view to the domestic audience. And the reasons are clear: the continuing split and growing social tension in society, and the problems in the economy of the United States itself, are not the best soil for building confidence among voters. Plus, Washington is not going to abandon illegal sanctions instruments to ensure a competitive advantage in world markets. And for this you need to come up with more and more mythical justifications.
But, as we can see, they do not achieve their goal. Our country is developing in spite of attempts at containment by the collective West. The Russian Sputnik V vaccine has been approved for use in 69 countries. And there would be more of them if it were not for the unlawful pressure from the United States, which is trying to clean up the pharmaceutical market for itself. Today Russia exports steel, aluminum, grain, pipes, and electricity. Delivers American astronauts into space. Russian athletes demonstrate success at the Olympic Games after the pressure exerted on them in recent years, schoolchildren from the Russian Federation take first places in the world Olympiads … Only it seems to me that Biden’s statements are outdated propaganda from the Cold War?
But about the interference – evidence, please, on the table. Otherwise, this is just another fairy tale from the Highly likely collection.”
