“Contacts between the presidents of Russia and the United States during the global crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic are an important factor. One of the main outcomes of the telephone conversation is an agreement on cooperation to combat COVID-19 within the framework of the G20. As was noted by Donald Trump, the presidents talked about supplies of medical equipment by Russia to the United States, which now tops the list of countries with the number of infected people,” said Leonid Slutskiy
Leonid Eduardoviсh , Chairman of the Committee on International Affairs.
He noted that he would not use these negotiations to talk about the possibility of instant warming in Russian-American relations. “Trump remains a hostage to the domestic political situation in the United States, where the anti-Russian sentiments prevail. Although, of course, I hope that relevant conclusions can be made,” said Leonid Slutskiy.
“Russia in the context of the civilizational struggle against the pandemic, in general, helps people simply survive, whether it is Iranians, Italians or Americans. This is the most important humanitarian mission without relying on the ”political effect“ such as the lifting of sanctions or a change of tone in a mutual dialogue. And this, I believe, is the most correct position,” concluded the parliamentarian.
