Russian people understand they face threat from ‘Washington empire’ – Ex-US Official

Washington: Russian people realize that they are facing a threat emanating from the United States, former US Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts told Sputnik.

“Some Russians are still influenced by the American propaganda from ‘Voice of America’ and ‘Radio Free Europe’ during the Cold War of the 20th century,” Roberts said. “But as the lack of political support for Alexei Navalny demonstrated, the Russian people understand that they face a threat from Washington’s empire, the response to which requires national unity.”

Meanwhile in the United States, Roberts said, the Democrats and the corporations have the borders wide open in order to displace higher cost American employees and Republican voters.

“Unity in America and throughout the Western World has been destroyed by identity politics. In the Western world no government represents the ethnic citizens,” he said. “Governments only represent the elite ruling interests. President Trump tried to change that, and we have seen what happened to him.”
