(Liberty Bell) – So it seems we’re now getting lectured by Russia who really wants the United States to sort out what it calls “internal quarrels” so that the capital of Moscow may work toward establishing more stable relations with Washington, according to President Vladimir Putin last Thursday.
According to reports from Breitbart, Putin said, “[I]nternal quarrels prevent the establishment of such stability in international relations due to internal political reasons.” The comments were made on March 11 during a meeting concerning investment promotion in Russia.
Putin provided a few examples of what was meant by “internal conflicts,” pointing to the riots that occurred at the Capitol building on January 6th, which saw alleged Trump supporters storming the building in an attempt to prevent Congress from certifying election results in favor of Joe Biden.
“Some of the people who took a stroll to the U.S. Congress — 150 people were arrested, they face imprisonment from 15 to 25 years. Will all these internal controversies end there or not? We do not know, but we want it to end, because we are interested in stable relations with all our main partners,” the Russian president stated.
He then went on to say it was “impossible to say with certainty how the world’s lead economy’s relations with its main partners and competitors in Asia and Europe will unfold,” referring to the United States.
Putin apparently spoke with President Joe Biden by telephone on January 26 in their first official communication since Biden administration took over. The U.S. government funded Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty reported the following day that U.S. and Russian read-outs of the conversation differed “substantially.”
“The Kremlin statement … mentioned several specific matters that the White House readout did not. Two of them were agreements from which the United States withdrew under former President Donald Trump: the Open Skies Treaty and the 2015 deal between global powers and Iran,” RFE/RL said.
It’s pretty embarrassing when another nation, like Russia, gets to lecture you on how bad the internal political situation is in your own country. There is definitely a lot of work to be done, thanks in large part to Biden’s administration setting back relations between countrymen by years. Hostilities are not likely to go away anytime soon.
Can you imagine what our great grandparents would think of being lectured to by Russia? How far have we fallen?
