MOSCOW, April 14. /TASS/. The US is seeking world supremacy and its geopolitical strategy relies on the instinct of colonizers, the speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament, Sergey Naryshkin, wrote in his article posted on the Vedomosti newspaper’s website on Tuesday.
"The new conflicts in various regions of the planet that often emerge due to external provocations show that the instincts of colonizers have not disappeared. They are presented with renewed vigour and by some carpetbaggers from the European continent, and they have become the essence of geopolitical strategy for the US," the State Duma speaker said.
The US is pursuing a hegemonic policy, Naryshkin said. "The obedience of almost the whole Europe in military affairs has already been reached, and many things are under control in political affairs. Now it’s time for trade and finances," he said.
Naryshkin said the key goal of the US sanctions, military and political undertaking in Donbas and other Washington’s actions in Europe is the signing a tough and all-encompassing economic deal with the EU, in which the Europeans will have the role of a younger partner.
"America needs the lengthy sanctions saga that comes in violation of the international law and the atmosphere of information hysteria to continue the unpunished economic banditry," Naryshkin wrote.
Naryshkin has again called on the citizens of European states "to make practical conclusions that are important for a new grouping of forces calling for a fair world order that is based on the law."
"And our brothers, the Ukrainians, should think about the real part that the overseas director assigns to their country. As for them, the tragedy of their Motherland is not even a supporting role but just an episode. And the number of victims is not important here. In line with the Hollywood standards, the sea of blood is a usual background for the main character’s exploits," he said.
In the article called "Instincts of Colonizers Or Root Cause Behind Global Leadership" Naryshkin notes that the longer the Ukrainian conflict lasts and Kiev fails to comply with the Minsk agreements, the more often the theme of the US special role in unleashing this conflict rises to the surface.
