PressTV – US trying to colonize Europe: Russia

Russia’s top lawmaker has accused the United States of trying to colonize Europe through its policies, stating Washington has already put Europe’s military and political spheres under its control and now trade and finance sectors are being targeted.

Sergey Naryshkin, the speaker of Russia’s lower house of parliament, made the remarks in an article posted on the Russian business daily Vedomosti’s website on Tuesday.

Naryshkin said the US is seeking world supremacy and its geopolitical policy relies on the character of colonizers.

“The new conflicts in various regions of the planet that often emerge due to external provocations show that the instincts of colonizers have not disappeared. They are presented with renewed vigor and by some carpetbaggers from the European continent, and they have become the essence of geopolitical strategy for the US,” said Naryshkin.
