MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - The chief of the State Duma’s committee on international affairs, Alexei Pushkov, fears that the current events in Egypt may trigger a new tide of upheavals in the Middle East.

“The Arab world has just entered into a phase of fundamental upheavals and there is no feeling that stabilization is near,” Pushkov told Itar-Tass.

In his opinion this march of events is quite logical.

“After prolonged authoritarian rule it is impossible to achieve elective democracy solely on advice from foreign centers of power,” Pushkov said. He is certain that it will be a complicated prolonged, and dramatic process. In some countries, a “sanguinary one.”

“Chaos in Egypt, complicated by civil confrontation, has shown that in the Arab countries there still is no groundwork for democracy,” Pushkov said.

Earlier, Egypt’s Defense Minister declared President Mohamed Morsi had been deposed. The head of the Supreme Constitutional Court, Adli Mansur, has been appointed provisional national leader. Morsi has been detained and according to some sources, is kept inside the building of the Defense Ministry. There have been reports about clashes between the supporters and opponents of the deposed president in different Egyptian cities.
