Senator Alexei Pushkov pointed to the former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul on mistakes committed by Washington in other countries over the last 20 years. He wrote about this in his Twitter.
Initially, the politician got into an argument with the diplomat on the issue of reunification of the Crimea with Russia. McFaul said that Moscow will send “little green men for the occupation of the territories,” whereas the US do not do. In response Pushkov said that the US occupying whole countries, destroying them or wreaking the havoc.
Later, McFaul acknowledged that sending U.S. troops to Iraq was a mistake, and he criticized his government as would Pushkov criticizing the “annexation” of Crimea. “It’s not criticism — the criticism did not change anything in the US aggression in Iraq and Libya. The problem is that the U.S. made too many mistakes in a number of countries over the last 20 years to learn Russian to international law. Follow it, and only then will you be able to teach others,” — said the Senator.
Crimea became part of Russia following a referendum in March 2014. The majority of respondents supported this decision. Kiev and Western countries do not recognize the referendum results, and consider the actions of Russian occupation.
