Konstantin Kosachev, chairman of the Federation Council committee on international affairs, reacted to the protests in the United States with the phrase “democracy is limping on both feet. The senator made the corresponding post on his page in Facebook…
According to him, Washington has lost the right to impose a course on other countries. “The holiday of democracy is over. This, alas, is actually the bottom, I say this without a shadow of gloating. America no longer charts the course, and therefore has lost all right to set it. And even more so to impose on others, ”he wrote.
As the reasons that prompted the Americans to protest, Kosachev named the “narcissism, eccentricity and adventurism” of US President Donald Trump.
On January 6, Trump protesters stormed the Capitol Building and surrounded the Senate Hall. The Senate and the House of Representatives interrupted the meeting, which was planned to approve the results of the past elections, according to which the Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election. Trump himself has called on supporters to act peacefully and support the police. The Capitol Building in Washington was later cleared of protesters. Former US President Barack Obama accused Trump of inciting violence.
According to the latest data, four people were killed during the protests.
