Leonid Slutsky: “The West continues to act in its paradigm of containing Russia and its closest allies”


Leonid Slutsky:

“The West continues to operate in its paradigm of containing Russia and its closest allies. The US State Department today posted a notice stating that Pulsar Research and Production Enterprise, Charter Green Light Moscow and Asia-Invest from Russia are now under sanctions due to the fact that, according to Washington, they violate US national nonproliferation laws. weapons of mass destruction against Iran, North Korea and Syria. The State Department did not give any concrete examples, let alone evidence. Not to mention the illegal nature of ex-territorial restrictions.

Great Britain is not lagging behind. London has introduced a new package of economic, trade and aviation sanctions against the government of Belarus. This was caused by mythical violations of human rights. And again, it was not without a blow to Russian citizens – Mikhail Gutseriev was included in the sanctions lists, who is connected with Belarus by the Slavkali plant and the project for the construction of the Nezhinsky mining and processing plant. In addition, as reported by Agence France-Presse, US President Joe Biden will soon sign a decree on sanctions against Belaruskali, one of the largest producers of potash fertilizers in the world.

In words – the struggle for world peace and the protection of human rights. But in reality, it is an ordinary dishonest competition, an attempt to squeeze out Russian and Belarusian companies from world markets and a hypocritical doublethink as an excuse for interfering in the affairs of sovereign states. One way or another, I am convinced that the corresponding steps will not go unanswered by Moscow and Minsk. “
