MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/ The search for a mysterious submarine by Sweden and the way this issue was originally presented in the Swedish media shows that the West is currently in the state of anti-Russian syndrome, said Alexey Pushkov, head of the State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee.
Last Friday, the Swedish military forces began their intensive search for a foreign submarine in the Stockholm archipelago waters. The local press claimed that the operation target may be a Russian submarine. Russian Ministry of Defense noted that "the search for the Russian submarine is unsuccessful because there is no submarine."
In this situation, the first thing that attracts attention is that Sweden “accused Russia of disturbing Swedish rest by its submarine from the very beginning,” Pushkov told TASS. He said this meant that “the West is currently in an anti-Russian syndrome state.”
“Confirmation of 'Russian aggression' is permanently being sought there, but it does not exist actually,” Pushkov noted. It is particularly noticeable in the Baltic states – Estonia and Latvia, which, according to him, “would be happy if evidence of aggressive Russian foreign policy appeared." "Because the entire foreign policy of these countries is based on escalation of tensions between the West and Russia," Pushkov said. "Even when there is no aggression, it will be imagined," he added.
