MOSCOW, 8 Nov – With its summit for democracy, the collective West wants to show that it has a certain unifying agenda, but one theory is not enough for a unifying agenda, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
In August this year, the White House announced that US President Joe Biden will hold a virtual summit with leaders of democracies on democracy on December 9-10. The main topics of discussion at the meeting should be the fight against authoritarianism, corruption and the protection of human rights.
“This summit for democracy is another chimera, which should show that the collective West has a kind of constructive unifying agenda. The unifying agenda should have concrete examples in practice, and not just theoretical fabrications, which then end in new scandals,” Zakharova said on the air. the program “Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on the TV channel “Russia 1”.
According to her, while all the contradictions within the United States of America persist, the US bid for leadership in the world “has not gone anywhere.”
“Accordingly, you need to offer something, something specific, for which you can build another coalition, as it was in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, however, it ended in mediocre failures. But the tactics are working, and now a new scheme was invented … even in the USA , even in the depths of NATO, they realized that it was not “comme il faut” to form the next military coalition now … I mean some kind of small fateful war, a military operation after what the whole world saw in Afghanistan, somehow not from hand. But something global that could create a sense of the unity of this Western world is quite. And so the so-called “summit of democracy” was invented, in support of democracy “, – explained the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
“What about Russia? Russia has proposed a concept that can and, I think, will lay claim to true leadership in the world. That very reasonable conservatism, which does not imply a refusal to move forward. It presupposes movement forward on the basis of all that is positive and effective. experience, which has been accumulated by humanity, by each specific country on its own specific example, “- added Zakharova.
She clarified that “the ideology of the Western world is in the creation of blocs that would be in constant opposition to someone, the ideology of our country is interaction on an equal basis in order to counter threats.”
