MOSCOW, December 9. /TASS/. The speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament, Sergey Naryshkin, has called on Europe to decide its future by itself and not be subjected to the influence of the United States that has pursued the policy of splitting nations on the continent.
“It’s high time European states took control of their own destiny without resort to a bear’s service rendered by those who only provoke conflicts, sow violence, devastation, humanitarian catastrophes and loss of lives,” the State Duma speaker told journalists on Tuesday.
Naryshkin stressed that as a European state, Russia is concerned by the violation of the international law and the fundamental European values. “We will urge our European colleagues to make practical conclusions for the sake of peace and stability on our common continent,” he said.
“There is a question who has been all this time undermining the unity of the European space by ignoring common historic values and traditions, and the mere civilization closeness of the people of our European continent,” the lawmaker said.
“This was done by those who today are trying to shift all the blame on Russia,” he stressed.
Naryshkin noted that US representatives as equal members sit in a number of European bodies and influence the decisions “regarding the fate of peoples and states that are thousands of kilometers away from the US.”
The lawmaker reminded that in late November he suggested at an international roundtable on ways to resolve the crisis in Europe that NATO should oust the United States from the 28-member bloc.
“As the phrase goes, there is a shard of joke in every joke. I am sure that such a move would only strengthen the stability and security on the European continent,” Naryshkin stressed.
