Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said that the events in Moldova and Georgia demonstrate the “neo-colonial approach” of Western countries.
“The United States and their satellites are trying to create hotbeds of tension for geopolitical confrontation with Russia in Moldova and Georgia,” Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said Tuesday.
“Of course, we are concerned about everything – both the situation in Georgia and in Moldova, because these countries are far away from America which seeks to dictate what they should or should not do. These countries are our neighbors, and we see that the United States and its satellites are working to create more and more hotbeds of tension along our borders and trying to organize some kind of geopolitical competition in these zones, which are key, even geographically, for the security interests of the Russian Federation,” he said.
The diplomat stressed that the events in these countries demonstrate the “neo-colonial stance” of Western countries. “They [Western countries] proceed from the assumption that only they have the right to dictate what to do. Again, this is an utterly neo-colonial approach,” Grushko added.
