Sergey Labrutto: Vladimir Astapkovich / RIA Novosti
For years the United States did not encounter serious resistance, “ordering the music” in international Affairs. This was stated by foreign Minister of Russia Sergey Lavrov in the framework of the dialogue of young diplomats on the sidelines of the world economic forum, reports RIA Novosti.
“Objectively, you can understand a country which a few centuries Piper calls the tune in international Affairs and did not encounter serious resistance and now it seems that this monopoly is objectively vanishes, because it is impossible not to reckon with a number of major countries,” Lavrov said, adding that currently there is “another world, different from the one in which the U.S. is accustomed to act at their discretion”.
The Minister also lamented the fact that Russian-American relations at the moment “poisoned”. According to him, in the relations with partners have become a constant mantra USA, “when that just is not so”, just to declare measures of force. “I don’t think you can count on long-term success in such a policy”, — said Lavrov.
August 28, Lavrov called American democracy “a house of cards.” “Does anyone seriously believe that the restaurateur from Russia (Russian billionaire Yevgeny Prigozhin, who is considered involved in the intervention in the American elections — approx. “Of the tape.ru”), placing some positions in social networks, can affect elections in such a powerful nation as the United States,” he wondered. The Minister also added that Moscow does not meddle in the Affairs of other States.
