Russian MFA: Moscow does not prepare plans to restore the Soviet Union
- 10 February 2021
“Last year was remembered with a number of events that affected the lives of our countries in one way or another. Attempts to destabilize our neighboring countries in order to radically change the vector of their development, to break away from Russia, and to establish a system of values alien to them, do not end. We observe the attempts of the west to turn post-Soviet space into a zone of constant conflicts and tensions. We see our duty in resisting such a policy,” said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Rudenko in an interview with TASS, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
“Furthermore, we are accused that we are allegedly developing plans of restoration of the Soviet Union. It is not so. Moscow demonstrates consecutive performances as a supporter of equal and mutually-interested cooperation with all post-Soviet countries basing on current traditional relations in different fields. We are sure that our partners from the CIS clearly understand appeals and threats coming from abroad. We hope that our friends will be able to solve political and socio-economic duties, set before them, constructively. We will provide comprehensive support to them in this issue by using opportunities of Eurasian Economic Union, CSTO, and CIS integration unions,” stressed the Russian diplomat.
