MOSCOW, November 9. /TASS/. Global support for the United States’ policy course is on the decline, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday commenting on the results of the US midterm elections.
“The initial results of the elections in the United States and yesterday’s hysterical ‘ultimatum’ by Ukraine’s green leader in a green unwashed T-shirt is proof that the familiar world of grandpa Biden is slipping away, global support for US policy is on the decline, and betting on a ‘stoned hetman’ was a huge mistake,” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel on Wednesday.
Medvedev, who served as Russia’s president (2008-2012) and who also is chairman of the nation’s ruling political party, United Russia, attached a cartoon to his Telegram channel post. The illustration depicts a blue pig flying over the planet, while being elevated by strings attached to numerous balloons emblazoned with the colors of the national flags of Western countries. The nations and continents on the globe’s map are highlighted in either red or blue.
“I have already written that some insolent countries and their piglets turned their backs on us. However, the whole world is not snorting with them in unison in the same choir,” Medvedev added.
Voting at the US midterms has come to an end. Americans cast their ballots for all 435 members of the House of Representatives and a third of the Senate.
In addition, governors of 36 states and three US overseas territories were elected. Local experts do not exclude the possibility that the ruling Democratic Party may lose control of the House and Senate after the elections, giving way to the opposition, the Republicans.
