Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“The coronacrisis is reflected not only in national economies, but also in formats of external influence. According to media reports, the head of the Pentagon instructed to reduce funding to “contain Russia” and redirect these funds to build a wall on the border with Mexico to combat illegal migration.
It was high time for Washington to tackle its own problems and stop imposing pro-American projects on European countries supposedly aimed at protecting security, and in fact at strengthening the US military presence at Russian borders.
The pandemic does not spare unhealthy initiatives, which have always included myths about Russian aggression.”
