MOSCOW, January 27. /TASS/. The head of the State Duma’s security and resistance to corruption committee, Irina Yarovaya (of the United Russia Party), claims that the United States governs international corruption, adding that the sanctions against Russia are one of the manifestations of that phenomenon.
"We do understand that the United States is working for a renaissance of colonial policies around the world. The renaissance of colonial policies US style implies new information technologies as a means of subjugating other countries with the aim of influencing people’s minds, demotivation and brain washing," Yarovaya said at the beginning of the State Duma’s full-scale session in a traditional five-minute political address each parliamentary faction is free to make before the session begins.
Yarovaya sees one of the manifestations of the new colonial policy in "international corruption," of which the sanctions imposed on Russia by some countries, including the United States, were an integral part. "Traits of international corruption are clearly present in the sanctions being applied to Russia by the very same United States," Yarovaya said.
"This is direct evidence international corruption, governed from the United States, is a tool of modern colonial policies, targeted against economic and political interests of other countries," Yarovaya said.
In particular, Yarovaya mentioned statements by US Acting Secretary of the Treasury, Adam Shubin, who in a BBC documentary claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s policies were aimed at personal enrichment. "The statements made by a senior US official about our president are false," she said.
"Mistakes in relation to Russia were made all the way. More are being made today. Russia is firm on the track of its own development and the issues of resistance to corruption, development of civil society, economic consolidation and higher quality of life are the issues we as a society and a state will be addressing on our own, with reliance on the national unity of our people and on confidence in our president," Yarovaya stated.
