The United States has decided to declare Russia “an evil empire”, said a member of the Defense Committee of the Council of Federation, Franz Klintsevich.
“It seems that the psychological information war against Russia is turning into a new quality. It seems that all these attacks on Russia, including groundless accusations in the use of chemical weapons in Syria, is a continuation of anti-Russian hysteria that has a long tradition in American politics.” he said.
According to him, there is a clear attempt to declare Russia an “evil empire”, as it was with the Soviet Union. “It’s clear that this has nothing to do with ideology, it’s about another altercation of the world [geopolitical interest], but in this case it will not work,” Klintsevich said.
