Senator Konstantin Kosachev spoke about the attempts of the bureaucrats of the White house to “correct” President Donald trump, who in recent statements recognized the Soviet role in defeating Nazism.
The head of the international Federation Council Committee Konstantin Kosachev praised the official White house statement, which does not mention the role of the Soviet Union in the victory over Nazism during the Second world war. In comments to RT , the Senator explained that there is an attempt of bureaucrats sitting in the us administration, to “correct President trump,” reports League news Russia.
The source noted that the President of the United States during the last conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin recognized the role of the Soviet state in the defeat of the common enemy.
Therefore, the statement of the White house may indicate an internal struggle within the us administration between supporters and opponents of rapprochement with Moscow, said the Senator.
In addition, Kosachev said that, in addition to internal squabbles, such statements may serve as a tool of U.S. foreign policy. Their goal is to reassure allies of Washington in Europe, aggressive in relation to Russia.
At the same time, the Senator stressed that many citizens living in the US and Europe remember and honor the feat of the Soviet soldiers.
