America specifically relies on politicians who enjoy alcohol a little too much, so that it is easier to exert pressure on them. This was stated during a meeting of the discussion club “March 18” in Moscow, by the Belgian political scientist Chris Roman.
According to him, the West has been using such a strategy since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
“The first person who was 25 years ago against Russia was Yeltsin. For me, Yeltsin is the “fifth column”, he was more often drunk than the other way around, and betrayed Russia.
For example, he gave Ukraine a huge territory, the Russian part – the Dnieper and everything in the east. If we look at what used to be Ukraine, then this is a very small part, Galicia.
For Yeltsin, there was no problem that Eastern Ukraine would be Ukrainian. But we know that she was always Russian, Crimea was always Russian. For a bottle of vodka he betrayed it all.
In the West, this is also a fact, Junker is more drunk than sober, and Poroshenko is the same. This means that the West chooses frivolous people who are ready to betray everything based on other dependencies,” Roman said.
