The press secretary of the Russian President recently lamented that Russia finds it sad that illogical anti-Russia policy is being maintained in the U.S. power class, saying that Moscow thinks that the unfriendly policy toward Russia will continue even after the U.S. midterm elections.

The First Vice-Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Federation Council of Russia also stated that no fundamental change will be made in the Russia-U.S. relations after the U.S. midterm elections, and to the U.S., the prime concern is its internal problems and the others are considered to be of secondary importance.

A spokesperson for the Russian foreign ministry clarified a stand that Russia harbors no expectations of or illusion about the shift of power between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party in the U.S. Congress, and that Russia will deliver a counterblow against the U.S. attempt to aggravate confrontation.

They are the “donkey” and “elephant” that would feel sorry to be the second in being distrustful of and hostile towards Russia. So the comments of the Russian official figures are only too reasonable.

The Democratic Party and the Republican Party have successively picked a free fight to press upon each other whenever an election took place in the U.S. But the two are well in step when they oppose Russia. Such deep-rooted antipathy to Russia prevalent in the U.S. political circles is now becoming a political limit in the U.S. which can never be overstepped.

It is not without the reason that experts on international affairs are commenting as follows when asked about the influence the U.S. midterm elections would exert on the Russia-U.S. relations: The principled stand of the U.S. is to defeat or dissipate Russia. Even when sleeping, Americans dream that Russia is disappearing from the earth. To weaken Russia is the common aim pursued by the Republican and Democratic Parties. There is no big difference in the viewpoint of the two Parties on the policy towards Russia.

There have been some assertions that it is favorable to Russia if the Republican Party rather than the Democratic Party takes office. However, during Trump’s term of office, the Russia-U.S. relations rather deteriorated instead of improving. In the light of this fact, it is axiomatic that the result of these elections won’t bring any changes in the Russia-U.S. relations.
