Dismal Russian/US Relations

The agenda of both countries are worlds apart.

Russia pursues peace, stability, cooperative relations with other countries, multi-world polarity and strict compliance with the rule of law.

Hegemon USA seeks unchallenged global dominance by whatever it takes to achieve its diabolical aims — preemptive wars by hot and/or other means its favored strategies.

They’re waged against nations unwilling to sell their souls to a higher power in Washington, ones against becoming vassal states, their resources plundered, their people exploited as serfs.

Diplomatic outreach by Russia and other sovereign independent states to the US is a profound waste of time.

Hegemons don’t negotiate. They demand subservience to their diabolical interests.

On October 30, Venezuela’s UN envoy Samuel Moncada denounced US rogue state policies.

Addressing member states of the Group of Friends in Defense of the Charter of the United Nations, he stressed the importance of prioritizing “compliance with and strict adherence to both the letter and spirit of the Charter of the United Nations.”

It’s to ensure “the realization of the three pillars of our organization, as well as for advancing towards the establishment of a more peaceful and prosperous world and of a truly just and equitable world order.”

At the same time, he expressed “serious concern (about) threats” to the Charter’s letter and sprit.

Notably he referred to extrajudicial unilateralism, attacks against multilateralism, (phony) claims of nonexistent exceptionalism” and other Charter breaches — with hegemon USA and partnered states in mind. 

These practices “resulted in massive violations of human rights and other tenets of international law, which remain unpunished,” he stressed.

Group of Friends nations “attach supreme value to the promotion and protection of human rights,” according to the rule of law.

What’s fundamental was long ago abandoned by hegemon USA and partnered states.

Their so-called rules-based order is their rules that flagrantly breach international law.

Separately on Friday, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the dismal state of Russian/US relations as follows saying:

“We have long ceased being surprised by all kinds of leaks and statements by US officials about the ostensibly unbearable conditions in which the US Embassy in Moscow has to work (sic).”

Washington “ratcheted up confrontation by resorting to its destructive practice of confiscating Russian diplomatic property and expelling employees of our foreign missions en masse, in violation of the 1961 Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.” 

“(W)e displayed restraint for too long, appealing to common sense and warning Washington about the consequences of these Russophobic attacks” to no avail.

Patience has a limited shelf life.  “(E)ventually (it) runs out.” 

Hegemon USA “is reaping the results of (its) aggressive and shortsighted policy.” 

“(F)ac(ing) a new reality of reciprocal painful restrictions, (it) pretend(s) to be (an) innocent victim of arbitrary treatment.” 

“We have repeatedly described in detail the damage done to Russian diplomatic missions.” 

“Our consulates general in San Francisco and Seattle are closed down.” 

“Over a hundred of our employees and their family members have been expelled under different (phony) pretexts since 2016.” 

“(W)hat is completely unheard-of in the canons of diplomacy and the right to property that has always been held sacred in the US, (its) authorities seized six Russian properties like raiders and surrounded them with a police cordon.” 

“They have not allowed Russian diplomats to go there since then.” 

“We asked the US Department of State to return them or at least to let us inspect the buildings and land but our requests were regularly turned down without explanation.”

“(D)eceptive assurances of US (officials) in their commitment to normalize the functioning of Russian and American embassies and consulates do not contain even a hint of willingness to negotiate as equals.” 

“They are complaining on the record about Moscow’s groundless ban on hiring local personnel.”

“(W)e prefer to discuss all these internal problems in regular order.” 

It’s “necessary to conduct a professional dialogue with a view to searching for solutions in this complicated situation that has taken shape not through Russia’s fault.” 

“Nothing prevents the Americans from fully filling a more than sufficient quota of 455 people for personnel, including consular officers that are so much in demand.” 

“Instead, Washington deliberately (lies and distorts about) Russia’s diplomatic presence in the US.

It falsely claims that it “exceeds that of the US in Russia four times over.” 

“A comparison of embassies and consular offices shows a completely different picture.”

Washington (unacceptably) demands that another 55 Russian diplomats, as well as administrative and technical workers leave the US in the next few months (which is tantamount to expulsion).”

The Biden regime is going all-out to worsen bilateral relations beyond repair by pushing the envelope beyond the point of no return.

Its rogue state actions reflect “a road to nowhere.” 

“Every hostile US action will be followed by a swift and commensurate, although not necessarily symmetrical, response.” 

The Biden regime “is well aware of the option we prefer – to remove all mutual restrictions that have piled up in the past few years.”

Instead of diplomatic outreach to improve relations, it’s going the other way.

And not just against Russia.

Their hardliners operate in similar fashion against all nations free from hegemon USA’s control.

It’s a self-defeating policy as seen by Washington’s steady decline on the world stage.

Ongoing at least since the neoliberal 90s, especially following made-in-the-USA 9/11, history’s dustbin awaits the arrival of its crumbling imperium because its ruling regimes refuse to change their wicked ways.
