US tries to hinder creation of multipolar world, says Russian Security Council chief

Nikolai Patrushev explained believes that "various means of pressure are employed"

MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev has accused Washington of resistance to forming a multipolar world based on the principles of equality and mutual benefit.

"Currently the world is in transition from the US-centric monopolarity of the recent past to international relations of a new type, based on the principles of equality and mutual benefit," Patrushev said.

"However, creation of a fairer, polycentric world order is proceeding in a no easy way amid active resistance by those who try to retain world domination," he added. "Various means of pressure are employed - economic, informational, psychological, military and political."

He explained that in a situation like this the role of international organizations Russia was affiliated to, first and foremost, the SCO, CSTO and BRICS, was growing. Patrushev said that Russia often presented a common front with other members of these organizations in the international scene.

"Slowly but surely the world has been developing the awareness that global threats can be resisted only together and that it is impossible to maintain one’s security at the expense of others," he said.
