Western attempts to isolate Russia are doomed – Russian MP
2 March 2014
Western states will not be able to achieve Russia’s international isolation in the wake of the Ukrainian crisis, says Head of the State Duma Committee for International Affairs, Alexei Pushkov.
“It seems to me that all talk about the international isolation of Russia is not productive. It is impossible to isolate Russia,” Pushkov told Interfax Sunday.
He stressed that there are other countries, besides those 28 states united in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
“And we have not heard that any statements were made by the overwhelming majority of countries, including the big ones – the leading countries – such as China, India and some others, over the decisions taken by Russia yesterday,” Pushkov said.
