Not long ago, an anti-Russian resolution was submitted to the U.S. Congress.
The resolution says that the constitutional amendment made in Russia in 2020 contravenes the Russian and international law. It also says that if President Putin is to be re-elected in the 2024 presidential election, the U.S. must not recognize it.
As already known, national referendum was held to make an amendment to the constitution in Russia in July 2021. This made it possible for President Putin to stand as a candidate again for the presidential election in 2024 when his term of office expires.
The thing is that the U.S. and the West are not pleased to see the provision of the legal foundation which would enable President Putin to come back to power, who takes a firm attitude to the former’s strategy to isolate and weaken Russia while aspiring to build a powerful state.
When the result of national referendum for the constitutional amendment was announced at that time, the U.S. and the West openly revealed their repugnance for the leadership of Putin with their backbiting that the “national referendum is nothing but a farce to strengthen the dictatorial system of Putin.”
The resolution submitted to the U.S. Congress this time is an invention filled with the U.S. inveterate sentiment against Russia and its hostile intention to stir up civil disturbances in Russia. As such, it is only evoking strong reaction from Russia.
Russian Officials including the Speaker of the State Duma and the Press Secretary of the President pointed out as follows:
Only the Russian people can decide who would become Russian President, and when he or she would be Russian President. The U.S. is doing everything possible to weaken and destroy Russia. To that end, the U.S. needs a change of government in Russia.
To elect a President in a certain country belongs entirely to the internal affairs as it is an inalienable and independent right of the people of that country. No other countries can say pros and cons about this.
Regardless of an outcome of the resolution, the mere fact that the resolution was submitted to the U.S. Congress lays bare the political climate of the U.S., which is resorting to interfering in internal affairs and infringing upon sovereignty of other countries, posing as an “example of democracy and freedom” and an “international judge”.
