stressed that “the current situation is the result of Washington's foreign affairs.”

According to him, “by ceasing implementing its obligations and rejecting our country's proposals on global security issues, the United States of America destroyed the architecture of international stability. The USA led the world to conflicts and challenges.”

“Members of the US Congress should understand the situation caused by Biden and its possible consequences,” concluded Vyacheslav Volodin.
