The official spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, has commented on yesterday’s speech by the US’s special UN representative, Samantha Power.
As reported earlier, the US’ special UN representative called Russia and Syria’s actions “barbarism.”
“When Samantha Power says something, then one wants to cry out of fear for the future of the world, because it is in the hands subject to these kinds of heads.
Another brilliant quote: the US’ special UN representative, not finding any other argument, compared Russia and Syria’s actions to being barbaric. I understand that she did this for the sake of imagery and in the absence of any facts. But even so, one has to know something about the history of the world.
1. If we consider things in a historical context, then both the Celtic and Slavic tribes belonged to the barbarians. Therefore, Samantha Power is wrong to not identify with them.
2. If we talk about historical parallels, then Samantha Powers is not right for a second time, because a barbarian is he who does not belong to an empire. But let’s take into account that there is only one empire today, and it is not Russia…
3. From the point of view of imagery, Samantha Power is not right again, because there is nothing more barbaric that the world has seen in recent history than Washington’s deeds in Iran and Libya.
But you, Samantha, don’t stop: the more you talk, the less work there is for ‘Kremlin propaganda.’
And now let’s be serious. There are two reasons why the Americans are turning the Security Council into ‘Samantha Barbara.’
The first is that Washington cannot fulfill the obligations it took upon itself in separating terrorists from ‘moderates.’
The second is that Washington needs to divert attention away from the investigation of its strikes on Deir ez-Zor.”
