MOSCOW, October 14. /TASS/. The United States is suffering from a "syndrome of fading leadership", Alexey Pushkov, leading the State Duma lower house International Affairs Committee, said on Wednesday.
"The United States is inclined to regard global politics from the point of view of a struggle for global leadership," Pushkov said. But fears of losing this leadership had become an obsession for Barack Obama and candidates running for presidency, he added.
"I’d call this a syndrome of fading leadership," Pushkov observed. "The US is striving to view all processes through the prism of rivalry between the world’s leading countries and, first of all, through the prism of personal rivalry between the American and the Russian presidents."
