The head of the Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexei Pushkov believes that US President Barack Obama deserves another Nobel prize for hypocrisy.
The Russian politician reacted to Obama’s statement: “The United States has created a world order in which sovereignty is respected in all countries”. “It’s after Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya?! Nobel! For hypocrisy,” Pushkov wrote on his Twitter page.
Barack Obama received the Nobel peace prize in 2009 during the first year of his reign, for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”.
