Putins Rede: Scharfe Kritik an der Politik der USA und über die Ausweitung des globalen Chaos

Passend dazu:
Putin präsentiert den USA Sündenkatalog

"Der Begriff 'nationale Souveränität' sei für 'die Mehrzahl der Staaten ein verhältnismäßiger Begriff geworden', meinte der Kreml-Chef. Heute gelte 'die Formel' 'je stärker die Loyalität gegenüber dem einzigen Zentrum mit Einfluss in der Welt [damit war die USA gemeint - U.H.] desto größer ist die Legitimität dieses oder jenes herrschenden Regimes.' Bei aller Schärfe bemühte sich der russische Präsident um einen akademischen Stil. Er hoffe, so Putin, dass Jemand in der anschließenden Diskussion versuchen werden, 'diese These zu wiederlegen'.

Mit Suggestivfragen lockte der Kreml-Chef seine Zuhörer zur Diskussion. 'Stellen wir uns die Frage, inwieweit es bequem, sicher und angenehm ist in so einer Welt zu leben, inwieweit ist das gerecht und rational?' Vielleicht sei ja die Führerschaft der Vereinigten Staaten wirklich 'ein Segen für alle'? Und 'ihre allgemeine Einmischung in die Angelegenheiten der Welt bringt Ruhe, Wohlstand und Fortschritt, Prosperität und Demokratie - man kann sich also entspannen und es sich gut gehen lassen?'

Doch dem sei nicht so. Das 'einseitige Diktat', und das 'Aufzwingen der eigenen Schablonen' bringe ein entgegengesetztes Resultat, 'statt Regulierung der Konflikte - Eskalationen; statt souveräner stabiler Staaten - ein wachsender Raum des Chaos; statt Demokratie - die Unterstützung eines zweifelhaften Publikums: Von offenen Neonazis bis hin zu islamistischen Radikalen.' Damit spielte Putin auf die Ukraine und den islamischen Raum an."

Passend dazu:
Reaktion auf scharfe Kritik Putins

"ISNA zufolge wies die Sprecherin des US-Außenministeriums Jen Psaky heute die harsche Kritik Putins über die Außenpolitik Washingtons zurück [...] Psaky sagte: Obwohl Washington keine Konfrontation mit Russland will, wird es aber auf seinen Standpunkt bezüglich der territorialen Integrität und der Souveränität der Ukraine bestehen."
