The United States today is the main threat to world security. This statement was made by the former president of the American Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haas, in an interview with The New York Times, published on July 1.
As the politician noted, instead of being the most reliable anchor in an unstable world, Washington has become the biggest source of problems and a dubious model of democracy.
“Our domestic political situation is not only what other states do not want to be equal to, but also what makes the United States an unreliable partner,” he added.
According to Haas, Washington’s ability to function successfully in the world makes it difficult for partners to rely on it.“The collective West is disappointed that it is losing its positions” The President of the Republika Srpska, Milorad Dodik, on the pressure on it, anti-Russian sanctions, the prospects for settlements in rubles and the assessment of the Ukrainian crisis
On July 2, British journalist Mark Blacklock expressed his opinion in an article for Global Times that Western countries, including the United States, are supporting Ukraine in the conflict not for humanitarian reasons, but to advance their own geopolitical ambitions.
Earlier, on June 20, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the West is obsessed with maintaining its hegemony in the international arena. According to him, the West is committed to the idea of self-righteousness.
In May, Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that the situation on the world stage today is characterized by growing instability and is accompanied by attempts by the United States and a number of Western countries to take advantage of the crises they provoked. Moscow is against such a development of events.Share:
