The initiative of the members of the American Congress not to recognize Vladimir Putin as president if he participates in the elections in 2024 represents interference in the affairs of a sovereign state, said the spokeswoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zaharova.
-There are things that are part of foreign policy or internal political process. There are things that are related to bilateral relations or to some ideology of the state. But what we see now, in my opinion, has nothing to do with anything. They really have no contact with reality. It simply becomes more and more noticeable every year, she explained for “Russia 24” television.
She added that they do not understand where the real problems are, where the virtual ones are, and where they are imaginary or believe that the virtual problems they are creating are their real world.
“Of course, that will have to be resolved, because it seems to me that they played a lot,” she said.
The spokeswoman added that there are many problems within the United States itself and that it is time for Washington to address them.
– I can list quite a number of them: these are the issues of those conflicts which, unfortunately, were initiated by the United States on the international scene with aggressive, occupying interference and its interventions. This is what is now called the influx of migrants, the influx of people, the refugee problem. Otherwise, at their borders (there is such a problem). But they have many more problems inside, Zaharova pointed out.
According to her, the problems of the United States of America are connected with the issues of problematic interracial relations, with the disunity of the American society, the confrontation of people “who for years clashed with each other those people who fought for power, for political influence”. In addition, she stated that in the United States, there is an imbalance between the legislative acts that were previously adopted.
Congressmen Steve Cohen and Joe Wilson submitted a proposal to the House of Representatives of the American Congress that Putin should not be recognized as the president of the Russian state if he decides to run for a new mandate in 2024, the congressman said in a statement. Earlier, Moscow called the discussion of American politicians and officials about the situation of Putin’s possible participation in the next presidential elections interference in the internal affairs of the country. The document proposed by Cohen and Wilson, if adopted, would not be binding.
