Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy Konstantin Dolgov on Friday, November 19, in an interview with Izvestia, called the draft resolution of the US Congress on non-recognition of the presidential elections in 2024 in Russia as absurd and nonsense.
“Against the background of that nonsense, absurdity, which they are now trying to accept, – the resolution in the US Congress on the non-recognition of Vladimir Vladimirovich [Путина] President of Russia if he wins the elections in 2024 – these are the painful fantasies of some American lawmakers, Bloomberg statements, as they say, go all together. I think these are all links in the same propaganda chain, ”he said.
Earlier that day, columnist Leonid Bershidsky wrote in an article for Bloomberg that the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline faces “guaranteed destruction” in the event of a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
US lawmakers Stephen Cohen (Democrat from Tennessee) and Joe Wilson (Republican from South Carolina) have submitted a draft resolution to the House of Representatives of the US Congress calling for Putin not to be considered president if he remains in office after May 7, 2024.
Resolutions of the House of Representatives and Senate have no legal force and are only advisory in nature. The executive branch has the right to ignore such documents.
First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Alexei Chepa told Izvestia that the draft resolution of the US congressmen on non-recognition of the presidential elections in 2024 in Russia is absurd.
As political scientist Marat Bashirov noted, two congressmen who are Russophobic, in his opinion, introduced a resolution for the purpose of PR. The expert noted that such initiatives often appear in the United States, are “showman” and have nothing to do with real politics.
In turn, the press secretary of the Russian leader Dmitry Peskov stressed that the Kremlin considers the document to be a demonstration of Washington’s interference in the internal affairs of other countries.
