MOSCOW, 4 Mar – RIA Novosti. The first deputy head of the United Russia Duma faction, Adalbi Shkhagoshev, commenting on the US calls for the Russian Federation to destroy “some kind of chemical weapons program,” said that the years of total American control over the world, and even more over Russia, had passed irrevocably, and the United States, before blaming the Russian side in something, you should stock up on evidence of your innocence.
The US calls on the Russian Federation to “declare and destroy its chemical weapons program,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said on Tuesday.
“The indefatigability of the United States in accusations related to the production of chemical weapons is associated with their impunity. And it has been going on since the treacherous attack on Iraq, the speech of (then US Secretary of State Colin) Powell at the UN and the million dead Iraqis,” the deputy told RIA Novosti …
He stressed that the destruction of the state did not entail any sanctions against the United States, nor a sober assessment of world security by other countries.
The parliamentarian also noted that, speaking about Russia today, the United States is clearly longing for the 90s, “when their national flags were hanging on Russian nuclear facilities and America posed a threat to the national security of our country.”
“The times of total control over the world, and even more so over Russia, have passed irrevocably – this must be accepted and stocked up not with conditions against us, but with evidence of one's innocence. Historically, the United States did not deserve to take its word for it!” – said Shkhagoshev.
Earlier, the US and the EU accused the Russian authorities of “poisoning” Alexei Navalny. The Kremlin has previously denied accusations of the presence of banned toxic substances. According to the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Moscow is complying with all obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention.
