Russia’s Ambassador to U.S. Antonov Explains Russia Seeks Dialogue on the Entire International Security System
Feb. 6, 2022 (EIRNS)—Russia’s Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov told the Soloviev Live YouTube channel yesterday that Washington is trying to reduce all international security issues to Ukraine. “You know, the U.S. is trying to narrow down all the present-day problems to Ukraine. I believe it is absolutely wrong, it is an attempt to blur the true state of affairs,” he said. Antonov said that Russian documents on security guarantees raise a question of the further development of the international security system.
“In fact, in the documents that we handed over to Americans and NATO, we did not just set a distinct signal about Ukraine or even about European security, we brought up a clear question about the prospects of international security. What world should we live in? Should we follow the teachings and decisions of the founding fathers of the post-war system of international relations, based on the UN and its Security Council? Should we abide by international treaties, agreements, international law or should we obey to dictates, force, some rules that are worked out without our participation?”
the ambassador described.
Antonov also denounced the psyops about an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine. “We keep saying that Russia is not going to attack anyone, we do not need that, it is not in our interests. It is merely nonsense to design some illusory projects of Russian aggression.”
