MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. The majority of the world countries do not support Washington’s policy against Moscow, the head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, Alexei Pushkov said on Monday.
"The United States perceived the changes that occurred after the Soviet Union’s collapse primarily as a "green light" to its political dominance," Pushkov said at the Moscow International Model United Nations conference.
The attempt to isolate Russia is reflected in the sanctions policy and comes not only due to the Ukrainian crisis but because of Washington’s understanding that Russia is asserting itself in foreign affairs what is "absolutely unacceptable for the US," Pushkov said.
The US president is "obsessed about containing Russia," the senior lawmaker added.
"The concept of the world community pursued by Washington is absolutely vicious as it’s about 35 states that are part of NATO and the EU and that in fact support sanctions against Russia," he said.
But there are more than 200 countries in the world and 100-120 states are rather important and have vast territory or big population, Pushkov said, adding: "That’s why taking 35 states as the whole world community is absolutely invalid and that’s an ideological forgery."
Pushkov stressed that the modern world should be multi-polar and be based on the balance of interests of a whole range of states, and cannot be built around one power or one military and political alliance or one economic bloc.
"The modern world can be based only on the balance of interests of a whole number of states, including small countries, but the responsibility here largely lies on the shoulders of the leading powers that should act for creating such a world that will allow the balance of interests to be observed," he said.
Otherwise, "we will face a dangerous development," he warned.
