MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia will pursue a sovereign foreign policy without looking at the U.S. hegemony forced upon countries, State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Alexei Pushkov said.
He stressed that Russia will not set itself against the rest of the world and will seek to be a constructive-minded member of the international community.
“At the same time, we will not turn a blind eye to the fundamental disagreements we have with some major world players, primarily the United States and NATO countries,” Pushkov told Itar-Tass on Monday, February 27, commenting on Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s last executive article on foreign policy.
Among these fundamental disagreements he named security and attempts to change the world order. “This is first of all the West’s policy with regard to missile defence and NATO enlargement, which has been proclaimed as an official goal of the alliance,” the MP said.
Speaking of a one-polar world, which in his opinion the U.S. is seeking to create, Pushkov noted that Putin had a good reason for accentuating the situation in Syria. “There is an obvious struggle for changing the world order and imposing the doctrine of humanitarian interventions that can become a global practice of exerting external pressure, interfering in the affairs of a sovereign state and carrying out armed invasions,” Pushkov said.
He stressed that Russia advocates an alternative approach, for equality and a multi-polar world. “This is where our future is,” he said.
