The refusal of the US, EU, UK, and joined them with Ukraine and Georgia to support in the UN General Assembly Russia proposed a draft resolution on the lifting of sanctions to combat the pandemic beautifully shows us the face of the collective West and its satellites “without a mask”. This was stated by the Chairman of the international Affairs Committee of the state Duma Leonid Slutsky. This was reported by the press service of the Parliament.
– Unfortunately, political egoism and hegemonic ambitions were much higher than the overall global efforts to counter COVID-19, – said Leonid Slutsky.
According to the parliamentarian, “ignoring the calls of the UN Secretary-General antónio Guterres and the continuation of the line on dominance at any cost (in the case of a pandemic – the cost of human lives) – short-sighted and inhumane policy. Thousands of patients, in particular in Iran, cut off from the possibility of obtaining quality health care because of illegal American restrictions taken in circumvention of the UN security Council”.
– Coronavirus and provoked by the economic crisis became a global threat to win which is possible only if a total consolidation. Dubin and sanctions is clearly not to help, but, frankly, – harm, – concluded Leonid Slutsky.
