The United States called on Europe to fight the authoritarian regimes of Russia and China for the values ​​of "free societies." This appeal was made in Berlin by the head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo.

The head of the US State Department accused Russia of aggression against neighboring countries




The US Secretary of State, delivering a speech in Berlin ahead of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, criticized Russia and China, urging the West to fight them. He called the fall of the Berlin Wall historical an event that should "serve as a lesson" for those who "believe that authoritarian regimes will exist for centuries."

Criticizing the Russian authorities, Pompeo said that Russia is exerting pressure on neighboring countries and pursuing an “aggressive policy” against them. As an example, he cited the "capture of Crimea" and the "Orthodox Church of Ukraine", which "is subjected to pressure from the Russian authorities.

Russia invades its neighbors, destroys political opponents. It suppresses the independence of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine

- he said.

Having finished with Russia, the head of the State Department began to criticize China. According to him, the Chinese Communist Party "forms a new vision of authoritarianism", oppressing its people. He compared her methods with the methods of the Communist Party of the GDR, which supposedly suppressed the rights and freedoms of East Germans.

The Chinese Communist Party uses tactics and methods to suppress its own people, which will be intimidating familiar to former East Germans

- he stressed.

Pompeo stated that currently "free nations are in a competition of values ​​with these non-free nations."

We must recognize who we are. Our democracies - the USA and Germany - possess tremendous political and economic capital and power that can only be accumulated by free societies. We have a duty to defend what was so hard to get in 1776, 1945 and 1989, and we must do it together. (...)

he called, adding that it was the United States that wanted to make Germany “independent of Russia,” saving it from Russian energy supplies.

        "Pompeo said that Russia is putting pressure on neighboring countries and is pursuing an" aggressive policy "against them.
        Do not understand Pompeo ..
        He is certainly weak in geography .. Russia and the United States are only 4 km away !!! wink
        Russia borders the United States through the Bering Strait, the border passing through which separates the Russian island of Ratmanov from the American island of Kruzenshtern. The length of the border with the United States is 49 kilometers. The distance from Russia to the USA is approximately 5 bus stops. According to the agreement on the sale of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands (1867), the border of Russia and the United States runs in the middle between the islands. And the distance between the islands is just over 4 km.
        But the usual speech is to make Europeans work for American interests to their own detriment. But. Europe is starting to grow wiser ....

      Oh how. Probably it is "for this reason" that the EU countries are developing their own independent payment systems, putting forward projects of their own security equipment and the Armed Forces independent of the United States. In general, then, the talker Pompeo did not voice anything new to the credo "obam-bam and tram-pam-pam." All his Wishlist only in favor of America and not a drop in favor of "partners".

      Germany must be kept at a distance, not hoping for friendship with the Germans. Should Russia weaken and the Germans will try to take revenge for the defeat of 1945 of the year, relying on US assistance.
      The United States continues the occupation of Germany and Japan, dictating its will to peoples who, apparently, under this dictate, can no longer live and think independently.
      So all this Gorbachev's "new thinking" turned out to be nothing, as they say, "the mountain gave birth to a mouse" (a pitiful cowardly rodent). It is a pity for the lost time, innumerable sacrifices and human suffering that occurred after the so-called "fall of the Berlin Wall". Today the main thing is not to repeat past mistakes!
