The Federation Council spoke about the “ice” war with the West: Politics: Russia: Lenta.ru
Senator Alexei Pushkov criticized the statement by the British chief of defense, General Nick Carter, that Russia and the West are now experiencing greater tension than during the Cold War. He wrote about this in his Telegram-channel.
Pushkov writes that the migration crisis on the border between Poland and Belarus may lead to an open conflict. “Really? Are four thousand migrants threatening Britain now? “- he noted.
Member of the Federation Council that the nature of events may be completely different, and these are Western countries, including the Black and Baltic Seas, Ukraine and the Baltic States. He added that it had already become aggravated and the reason for the incident was not migrants. “The war has already become icy,” summed up Pushkov.
It is noted that Carter had previously stated that tensions in relations between Russia and Western countries could lead to conflict due to any “accident.” As an example, he cited the migration crisis on the border of Belarus.
Earlier, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, criticized Western countries for their unwillingness to help migrants on the border of Poland and Belarus. Zakharova noted that the West first “lured” migrants into its thickets and thickets, and now turns away from them. She stressed that it is necessary to collectively organize assistance to migrants, and not to conduct “political conversations”.
