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

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.

      it will be much more true:
      that the United States puts pressure on neighboring countries, conducts an “aggressive policy against them, it invades other countries, destroys political opponents”

      "Pompeo said that Russia is exerting pressure on neighboring countries, 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 ....

    “When I was a cadet - what is the motto of the cadets at West Point (the famous US military school - S.F.):“ I won’t lie, I won’t cheat, I won’t steal and I won’t put up with those who do it ” .
    And when I was the director of the CIA: we lied, we cheated, we stole. We have whole courses devoted to this! ”

    Oh how. Probably, precisely for this reason, the EU countries are developing their own independent payment systems, putting forward projects of their security means and aircraft independent of the USA. In general, the talker Pompeo did not say anything new to the credo “Obam-bam and Tram-pam-pam-pam.” All his Wishlist are only in favor of America and not a bit 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 "new thinking" came out zilch, as they say, "the mountain gave birth to a mouse" (a miserable cowardly rodent). It is a pity for the lost time, innumerable victims and human suffering that occurred after the so-called "fall of the Berlin Wall." Today the main thing is not to repeat past mistakes!

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

    I remember the case when dozens of Tomahawks were launched through the territory of Syria for absolutely peaceful purposes, and all this for the sake of peace, in the name of philanthropy ... recourse
    And interestingly, no one has blamed the United States for aggression against an absolutely sovereign state. And when, in Venezuela, a certain Guaido was "appointed" as president, the world was stunned by American warnings if this candidacy was not accepted ...
    The most famous manifestation of peace was shown by a demonstrative raid of the AUG towards the DPRK ...
    Does Russia also need to make preventive missile launches or do we dispense with an expression of complete contempt?

    All come down!

    First-rate
    Orthodox Russia
    God Bless!
    Her kingdom is slender,
    Calm is in power
    All are unworthy,
    Get rid of it!

    Oh, providence,
    Blessing
    They sent us down!
    For good, desire,
    In happiness, humility,
    In tribulation, patience
    Give to the earth! "

    Amen!!!

    It would be better if they freed Germany from themselves, the occupiers are worthless, they have occupied the whole of Europe and someone is to blame, they are establishing their own democracy around the world, even if they are not asked.

    It is time to protect the world from the "free societies" of the Western type.
    Somehow they have been greyhounds since the end of the XNUMXth century

    Funny reason for the "fight". Authoritarian regimes poked half of the geographical map. So what? Do you have to "fight" with everyone? It would be funny to look at the US war with the "eastern despotism" of the Saudi kingdom. laughing

      But the country where the president openly recognizes himself as an executioner is one.
      Funny evolution: Bush is a secret executioner; Obama is a shy executioner; Trump is a proud executioner.

    And I do not believe. But this does not mean that I am not for the Russian world.

    Believing this is a private matter, and people cannot be condemned for faith. We are not from an incubator to be similar to each other.

    I do not judge. But I know for sure that adherents of faith are very aggressive. Now the question is no longer about protecting believers, but about protecting atheists ... Protect me. :)))

    I would say in short, fight with authoritarian regimes for the sake of the United States since the United States has recently had problems with this. And then we will praise you for this and give you a piece of candy.

    The old shit song is nothing. Again they are engaged in the persecution of peoples, when this ulcer called the USA disappears.

    Then, in the telephone receiver, Angela Fyurerovna hears:

    “Val!” Mahmoud, set it on fire! ”

    A couple of bataklans and Euro-six will become more accommodating! laughing

    Where there is oil, there are your values ​​!!! Something you don’t want to establish your shit democracy in Ethiopia. With regards to Germany, 70% of East Germans voted for the values ​​of the USSR.

    The CIA and the Pentagon must be officially recognized as terrorist organizations.
    .A American government and pro-fascist system. For action in Yugoslavia and Iraq, Libya, give them to an international tribunal. Judge for interventions c. affairs of other states. Grenada got away with it. It's time to stop them with the whole world.
