Medvedev Describes How Russia, China and India Are Shaping a New Order
March 27, 2022 (EIRNS)—In a March 24 interview with RT and Sputnik, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev pointed to the formation of a new era of international relations, involving China, India, and Russia, as the above-the-law approach of the Anglo-American establishment (Anglo-Saxon in his terminology) collapses.
“Clearly the U.S. believes it is a nation outside international law, above everyone else. Following the collapse of the U.S.S.R. and an end to the bipolar world order ... the U.S. saw itself as the winner and the sole beneficiary of the Soviet Union’s demise.”
Due to the size of the U.S. economy and the dollar being the main reserve currency, the U.S. believes it can do whatever it wishes. “That is why they now feel completely unpunished in this respect as well,” he explained. “Exactly for that reason the U.S.’s actions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam a few decades ago, have never come under any legal scrutiny by the international community.”
“The U.S. behaves this way around the world because they think there is no longer any competition. But they are wrong. Life does not stand still,” he said. “It means new centers of gravity in international relations are being shaped. Take the People’s Republic of China, India, and the Russian Federation....
“The unipolar world is over. The U.S. is no longer the master of planet Earth.”
He responded to another question, pointing to the power of collaboration among what Lyndon LaRouche identified as four great powers indispensable to creating a new architecture for the world. The G20 was created in 2008 in light of the financial crisis. “Everyone was delighted that representatives from so many countries were sitting at the same table—Russia, the U.S., China, and India. G20 was a format that was born from consensus, based on unanimity.”
