MOSCOW, December 18. /TASS/. Published national security Strategy of the United States shows that Washington is not satisfied with the changes that have taken place in recent years. This opinion was expressed on Monday, the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev.
“The tone of the document leaves no doubt that the US is not satisfied with the changes in the world in recent years, and they intend to wrap them backwards, returning the recent version of Pax Americana [American peace] as a supposedly just world order,” Kosachev wrote on his page in Facebook.
He noted that those who are in doubt, in particular Russia and China, called “revisionists”. “Compared with the classification of [President Barack] Obama is, of course, progress as a precursor to the trump have included Russia among the main threats alongside the Islamic state (formerly the banned terrorist group “Islamic state” – approx . TASS) and Ebola (if anyone still remembers this global threat)”, – said the Senator.
In his opinion, promulgated a strategy of national security deserves a careful study, “at least for the reason that they are called upon to define the logic of the foreign policy of the administration of Donald trump, the logic is not seen.”
The accusations against Russia
USA spoke about the new national security strategy
Accusations that Russia is creating a “unstable frontier” in Eurasia, Kosachev said to be expected, since “stability-American” is the US control over domestic and foreign policy of other countries, the “dictatorship” of the US embassies”.
“Coupled with the promise in this regard to strengthen the Eastern flank of NATO is no doubt that the US is preparing to break (or rather, to justify what is already being done de facto) restrictions on the location of the significant armed forces in the East of Europe. And if you remember the frankly poorly justified accusations of Russia in the alleged violation of the INF Treaty to untie to themselves hands in respect of this agreement, the picture looks very alarming,” – said the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council.
In his opinion, the United States made a bid for power in all spheres – from the economy to defense, and America first will mean “America stronger than all, then she’s right”.
Kosachev recalled that during the “cold war” parties feared each other due to mutual attempts to disrupt the balance of power in their favor. “Now the world is upside down: Americans see a revisionist Russia in the attempts of their violation in their favor the balance to be restored. This is so dangerous for the whole world the Americans with their new national security strategy”, – said the MP.
The new strategy of national security
The white house on Monday issued the new national security Strategy of the United States. Several points relate to Russia. In particular, says that Russia’s ambitions and its military capabilities create an “unstable boundary” in Eurasia, where the risks of armed conflict are rising allegedly due to miscalculations of Moscow. The document notes that the deployment of a layered missile defense “will not undermine strategic relations with Russia and China”, as it is intended to protect the country against missile attacks from North Korea and Iran. Also in the updated strategy States that China and Russia are developing weapons capable of threatening U.S. critical infrastructure and structures of command and control.
