On the 90th anniversary of Russian-U.S. relations, the Russian Foreign Ministry released a dire statement, emphasizing the precarious state of the relationship.
The statement pointed to Washington's aggressive stance, citing "rampant Russophobia" as a primary factor that could lead to a rupture at any moment. The ministry asserted that Russia did not seek this outcome but blamed the United States for provocative actions, including the pursuit of a "strategic defeat" against Moscow, which could result in disastrous repercussions.
Tensions between the West and Russia have plunged to Cold War-era lows, exacerbated by NATO's support for Ukraine.
Moscow accused the U.S. of obsessively attempting to change the regime and incite internal strife in Russia, with significant financial investment in this alleged project. (Related: Leaked Pentagon documents prove that World War III has been in the planning stages for years.)
Despite this harsh rhetoric, Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs acknowledged that the U.S. had recently signaled a willingness to engage in pragmatic, informal dialogue during the APEC Summit in San Francisco.
However, the ministry emphasized that Washington's policy of unproductive verbal disputes persisted.
As the conflict between Russia and Ukraine enters its third year, Moscow finds itself in an increasingly desperate position on the battlefield.
The influx of billions of dollars in Western weaponry to Ukraine has blunted Russian advances, leading to heightened tensions. Some Russian politicians and pundits have even called for war with the West. The potential for a conflict between NATO and Russia is considered devastating, with concerns about the escalation to nuclear warfare. Russia possesses nearly 6,000 nuclear warheads, while NATO countries, including the U..S, U.K. and France, collectively hold a similar number.
Russia and the U.S. established ties on November 16, 1933. This marked a significant turning point in the complex relationship between the two nations, given the crucial role of these ties in maintaining international peace and security.
Achieving this required the U.S. ruling elite to set aside ambitions and discard stereotypes, embracing a new reality. This decision not only opened avenues for promoting mutually beneficial trade and economic cooperation, but also laid the groundwork for the allied relationship between the Soviet Union and the United States during the Great Patriotic War, according to a Russian Foreign Ministry statement.
Subsequently, bilateral relations experienced fluctuations shaped by Cold War dynamics, even teetering on the brink of nuclear confrontation during the Cuban Missile Crisis. But leaders at the time exercised common sense, avoiding a fatal point of no return and reaching agreements on peaceful coexistence and arms control.
Regrettably, contemporary politicians and experts have struggled to grasp the processes unfolding in Russia since 1991. Instead, they persisted in futile attempts at regime change and internal strife, investing substantial funds in these endeavors.
As geopolitical shifts reshape the world and the global power balance undergoes rearrangement, Washington has focused on globally containing Moscow and Beijing, effectively pursuing a containment policy against the global majority resisting the West's rules-based order.
Nevertheless, the Russian ministry said the anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect on the positive historical experiences when the two countries navigated relations based on respect and consideration of each other's interests.
