MOSCOW, April 24 /TASS/. Alexey Pushkov, the head of the Russian State Duma Committee for Foreign Affairs, has described the West’s neglectful attitude to countries which do not share the "values" of an America-centered world as a manifestation of "political racism."
"We are being asked: who is on your side? You know, this [such questions] is a variety of western political racism," Pushkov said in an interview aired by the TV-center channel on Sunday.
"Who is supporting you? Bolivia, Cuba…," Russia’s opponents ask.
"No, it’s not only them. It is far from being only them. In fact, the better half of humanity is against the America-centered world. It includes countries like China, India, Brazil, the better half of Latin America and the Arab world - look at Egypt," the Russian deputy said.
According to Pushkov, the America-centered world does not need countries like Russia, which is ‘problematic’, has a vast territory, huge resources and an enormous potential for independence. "And that does not fit into the U.S. global project," the Russian politician explained.
"They [the U.S. - led western world] need the subjects of their world rather than objects with a considerable degree of independence," Pushkov said. "That is why when we say that we need to fight for a new world order, which will not be so centered around the United States and in which there will be a balance of interests, we, in fact, want to guarantee conditions for national existence and survival. But by doing this we carry over many countries, which until recently have not played any leading role in politics, to our side," the politician stressed.
