Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN in Geneva: The myth of the “Russian threat” is necessary for the West for commercial reasons

42

By scaring their citizens with “aggressive” Russia, the authorities of the United States and NATO countries get the opportunity to freely increase military spending. Thus, the myth of the "Russian threat" is largely necessary for the West for commercial reasons.


This idea was expressed by the permanent representative of the Russian Federation in the UN Geneva office Gennady Gatilov in interview agency RIA News.

The myth of Russian aggression against Ukraine is a profitable undertaking from both a political and, if you like, a commercial point of view

- he considers.

In addition, Western politicians and the media, declaring the risk of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, allow the opportunity to increase the military contingents of the United States and the North Atlantic Alliance on the territory of Eastern European states. This is pushing Washington's European allies, who, after the withdrawal of NATO troops from Afghanistan, began to become disillusioned with the idea of ​​"North Atlantic unity", rally around the United States again.

For the United States, this is a very convenient reason to consolidate its military presence in countries neighboring Russia.

Gatilov says.

He believes that this version is confirmed by the West's unwillingness to hear Moscow's assurances that it has no "aggressive plans" in relation to neighboring countries.

Also, the Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN suggested that the danger of military actions of the Ukrainian military in the territory of Crimea is growing. In his opinion, Kiev is capable of organizing large-scale provocations there.

It is worth adding that earlier the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed the data that in 2022 the Russian Federation will not take part in the Munich Conference. According to Maria Zakharov, this conference has recently begun to lose its inclusiveness and began to turn into another transatlantic forum.

      And the 30-year war in Europe occurred through the fault of Russia, and the Russians also brought the plague to Europe, and the Russians staged the French Revolution, and now they also staged an energy crisis, but no one in Europe will understand "What does Ukraine have to do with it?"

    The Americans will not miss the commercial advantage. This is confirmed by the number of weapons supplied to Ukraine and unused weapons only recently. Sickly loans, not sickly and%.
    For the United States, this is a very convenient reason to consolidate its military presence in countries neighboring Russia.
    If Ukraine did not exist, it simply had to be invented. And on you: 1.700 additional soldiers here, several thousand more, and with them tanks, and infantry fighting vehicles, and air defense systems, ships to the Black Sea ... And most importantly, it seems like a "just cause" - to support Ukraine.

    Well, here, objectively, if we evaluate it, then until recently NATO was more dead than alive, and most of the members of the alliance either hung around and did not pay in full, or squabbled with each other, which Trump complained about very much at one time. Now NATO is rallying against a single enemy and increasing funding + The Swedes and Finns are still going there.
    From my point of view, this does not at all attract geopolitical success from our side. If in the end everything remains in its place (there will be no concessions), then we simply resurrected a half-dead enemy with our own hands good

      And what concessions do you offer?
      Is it possible that the CMEA, the Department of Internal Affairs and the USSR will collapse on their own?

    For the past 37 years, Russia's policy has been changing direction like a weather vane. Either we kiss on the gums and pat on the shoulder of our “partners”, or we begin to look for some reasons for their Russophobia and anger ...
    Only the strongest can survive in this world.

    Tsar Alexander came 200 years ago to Paris - the Liberator.
    Stalin came in 1945 to Berlin - the Liberator.
    Putin sits in the Kremlin without getting out - Aggressor.
    So, shouldn't we free Europe once again from a stupid delusion?!
    We will immediately turn from the Aggressor into the Liberators of Europe from the Transoceanic Yoke.

        What am I saying? The same! Only for the difference from you, I think all the capitalists, including Russian ones, are equally anti-people! There are no "ours" and "yours", they are all saved from one!

        Here, involuntarily, you have to "gather in a bunch" in order to resist this caudle.

    The agenda of the conference is already clear, again the same song and even "not in a new way, but all in the old way." Now all the samets, briefings, forums with the participation of the West come down to one thing: "Russia is the aggressor, Russia is to blame for everything, even for the decrease in the birth rate in Europe and the United States (especially)".
