Typical American diplomat.
Why should people who don’t respect human rights freedom democracies be allowed to breathe, huh?
The US, a country with a mammoth national debt, is trying to prevent others from growing their economies, the Russian Foreign Ministry said following actions taking aim at the Russo-German Nord Stream 2 pipeline project.
Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova lashed out at the US’ crippling sanctions regarding the pipeline this Friday.
“A state with a $22-trillion national debt prohibits creditworthy countries to develop the real sector of their economies!” she wrote in a Facebook post, adding that the “American ideology of living on loan has not withstood global competition.”
“They will soon demand we stop breathing immediately. And many will obey, after all.”
Russia “has implemented, and will continue to implement, its economic projects regardless of any sanctions,” but the whole affair will show whether European countries are ready to sacrifice their own energy interests for those of the US, the Foreign Ministry added later in a statement.
The sanctions package specifically targets companies involved in building the last remaining leg of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that runs between the Russian and German coastlines through the Baltic Sea. Berlin has already expressed unease over the US’ move, calling it interference in their domestic affairs.
This isn’t even really obtuse or confusing.
The West is literally attempting to tell Russia “you just can’t do business at all.”
And why, exactly?
Are they still talking about those alleged $20,000 worth of Facebook ads during the 2016 election? Which are still not even proved?
What did Russia even do?
