. “We, regardless of our views, should have courage to admit that the agreements that states reached after World War II have been destroyed. The issue of global security is very acute today,” he added.

According to him, Washington and Brussels are waging war in Ukraine. “We have always said and emphasize today that we have nothing to share with the Ukrainian people. But NATO has seized Ukraine, brought its mercenaries there: both to power and to the battlefield. The current situation is the result of such actions,” added Vyacheslav Volodin.

Speaking about the prospects of peace negotiations, the Chairman of the State Duma expressed the opinion that Ukraine and its president would not come to the negotiating table until Washington let them do that. “Ukraine as a state does not exist anymore. Today this territory is a testbed for weapons sent by all NATO member states. Ukrainian authorities are only puppets. Advisers from Washington, from Brussels rule there. If we talk about Zelensky, he is just a TV presenter. Moreover, he simply reads the text written for him,” added Vyacheslav Volodin.

The Chairman of the State Duma stressed that Russia stood for a multipolar and just world, where each country should have future, and the people should have prospects.

Russia's special military operation in Ukraine was inevitable, otherwise the world would have been plunged into tragedy, Vyacheslav Volodin is convinced. “It is very important for everyone to understand that,” he said.

Today, a meeting of the CSTO PA Council is being held in Minsk. In 2023, the Republic of Belarus chairs the CSTO PA. The meeting is chaired by the CSTO PA Chairman, Chairman of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin. Parliamentarians are discussing issues of harmonizing the legislations of the CSTO member states and preparing model laws to counter challenges and threats to security in the organization's area of responsibility.

The Council’s agenda also includes consideration of draft statements on the prevention of an arms race in outer space and on countering drug use among children and young people.
