US Ambassador to the Russian Federation: Meetings with different political forces in the country are normal

50
American political logic: the Russian ambassador meets with any of the representatives of political circles or the US business - “Russian intervention in internal affairs”; The US ambassador meets with Russian politicians - “democracy, normal practice.”


Journalists from the Russia 1 channel asked for comment on the first visit of the US ambassador to Yekaterinburg, where John Huntsman met with the governor of the region and the mayor of Yekaterinburg.

TASS quotes Ambassador Huntsman:
This is the normal course of diplomatic work. And when I was the ambassador in Singapore, in China, the governor of the state of Utah, I always tried to meet people of different opinions. I do not think there can be such accusations. If the ambassador does not hear different opinions, his work will not be complete.


US Ambassador to the Russian Federation: Meetings with different political forces in the country are normal


According to Huntsman, he is puzzled as to why in Russia his meetings with representatives of opposition circles can be regarded as an attempt to interfere in future presidential elections in the Russian Federation.

As already noted, but in the United States, any contact of the Russian ambassador with any of the American citizens is considered almost as direct espionage. One can imagine what kind of hysterics Russophobes would have thrown into Congress if the Russian ambassador to the United States, Antonov, even tried to meet with the governor of one of the American states.

          American political logic: the Russian ambassador meets with any of the representatives of political circles or the US business - “Russian intervention in internal affairs”; The US ambassador meets with Russian politicians - “democracy, normal practice.”
          The USA is a state of false democracy, false freedom of speech and double standards in international politics. And gentlemen from Washington stubbornly do not want to admit it.
          In their completely sincere conviction, the foundations of the world consist in the fact that only the West has the right to judge and change the rules in the course of the play, only its judgments are true and unconditional to acceptance by all the others, only it is an absolute and unshakable moral authority capable of judging what is the media and what is an instrument of hostile foreign propaganda.
          However, the main problem, perhaps, is not even that the United States and its representatives are dominated by such beliefs. The most serious problem is that they still have these beliefs, even despite the large-scale and absolutely visible changes in the world in recent years, changes that, it would seem, should have conveyed to them the need to correct their views and adapt to new realities.

You look at the "businessmen" - it’s hard for them in life. Harya does not fit into the TV. But - not a criminal. Successful businessman.

      Everything is fine - Huntsman is also an agent of the Kremlin. He for the Kremlin "marks" the victims of political terror. In this regard, the question arises: "What is old McCain whispering to with Huntsman? Is he really an agent of the Kremlin?"

    Well, those-u-pye these Russians. They do not want to understand that this is the American ambassador. He is actively spreading American democracy. And Russians in the United States can only carry propaganda hostile to the United States. And instead of gratitude, they raise high and condemn the great country, a light for all the backward barbarians. Look how Ukraine has advanced on the path of democracy. Draw conclusions.

      You correctly noticed. Recently I read that after Antonov different obstacles are being built for us.
      Officials refuse to meet, etc.
      It would be useful for Putin to hint at liberal measures about some of the consequences of their meetings with the "shit-bearer" from Matrassia.

    if US ambassador Antonov at least tried to meet with the governor of one of the American states.

    Yes, there the governor would immediately put on full pants and run away from Antonov, like a devil from incense.
    But in general - it is not clear. They restrict our diplomats in movements and meetings (Matvienko is not a diplomat, but she was limited in movement even in the USA, but within New York), and we allow them to ride all over the country.
