ST.PETERSBURG, February 13 /TASS/. Sergey Naryshkin, the speaker of the Russian State Duma (lower house of parliament), has accused a number of western countries of unleashing a new Cold War.
"Europe and Russia are going through hard times. A group of western politicians and a group of western countries have unleashed a new Cold War," Naryshkin said during a visit to the Baltic Technological University in St. Petersburg on Friday.
"They want to forget the lessons of history and do not want to listen to the voice of reason," the State Duma speaker said.
According to him, the global system is undergoing a serious transformation. "It is moving away from a unilateral world order and the influence of the US hegemony is weakening," Naryshkin said adding that the US policy had led to thousands of victims in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and regrettably in Ukraine.
