MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s State Duma Sergey Naryshkin has likened the recent G7 summit in Bavaria to the 1938 Munich Agreement, during which Western countries de facto endorsed the beginning of Czechoslovakia’s seizure by Nazi Germany.
Commenting on today’s speech at the plenary session of lawmaker Vyacheslav Nikonov, the speaker recalled that the BRICS parliamentary forum held in Moscow earlier this month had "coincided in time with G7 meeting in Bavaria." "The forum in Moscow was held publicly, with a positive agenda. What the G7 leaders in Bavaria discussed is unknown, the meeting was held practically behind closed doors, only the photo session was public," the head of the lower house of the Russian parliament said.
"This brings to mind another historic meeting, which took place in Bavaria in 1938. We all remember that it got its ominous name - the ‘Munich Conspiracy.’ Unfortunately, far from everyone draws necessary lessons from history," Naryshkin said.
