MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia is worried by the growing attempts by external actors to encourage destructive forces in many countries under the cover of democratic struggle, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said, following the aggravation of the political situation in Venezuela.
“Social engineering technologies can be used in different countries. We are worried by the tendency towards encouraging destructive extremist forces in many countries, encouraging from the outside, under the mottoes and under the cover of struggle for democracy,” Ryabkov told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday, March 5.
“This is a distortion of the very essence of the political process and public development, let alone international law and interstate relations,” he said.
