Russian Statesman Urges for a ‘New World Order’ For Peace

Jan. 30, 2022 (EIRNS)—RT news agency reported that during an interview conducted earlier this week with Ukraina.ru, Sen. Aleksey Pushkov, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, who previously served as chairman of the State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee, expressed his view that there will be peace between Russia and the United States only when a “new world order” is established.

“The U.S. is a hegemon [sic] that is gradually losing its position in the world. They suffered a very serious defeat in the Middle East, they lost Syria, they lost the battle for Afghanistan, they were forced to withdraw almost all of their troops from Iraq at the end of 2021.

“[U.S. officials] are trying to maintain their dominant influence by having conflicts simultaneously with Russia and China, although with different degrees of intensity.”

Pushkov emphasized that the political and financial elite of the United States “believe that they are the only ones who can run the world,” and want to prevent any other nation from taking the lead.

Falling short of identifying the role of the British oligarchs and the impending financial collapse as driving the conflict, he said, “So, until a new world order is established in which the U.S. is weaker and its role is diminished, we will be in more or less acute political conflict with them.”

“The U.S. no longer treats us as a secondary power. They treat us as a paramount power, which is why they cite Russia, not China, as one of the main problems facing the Biden administration in 2022, [warning that 2022 will be] a year of crisis between Washington and Moscow.”

Pushkov is a Senator in the Russian Federation Council, and a member of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building.
