“And now, it should not be like that,” Gorbachev stressed. “Fences are being built around us, which push towards an anti-Russian way. Even Germany which after reunification presented itself very well and called for renovation, is now just on the brink of a split. And now nothing takes place without the presence and a push from America,” Gorbachev said.
“Now the signs of cold war have again emerged. This whole process may and needs to be stopped. It was stopped in the 1980s. And we opted for deescalation and reunification (of Germany - TASS). Back then it was harsher than today. And now we can also do this,” Gorbachev said.
Gorbachev said the United States is to blame for the new round of confrontation. According to him, the Americans decided that they had won the cold war. “I do not want to praise our authorities. They also make certain mistakes, but today the danger comes from the American stance. This ‘triumphator’s spirit’ is bothering them,” the politician said.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia underwent difficult times, and the United States took advantage of that fact, but now the situation is different, Gorbachev said.
