Russia Unironically Chastises US As “Not Up To Modern Democratic Standards”


Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Russia has joined the ranks of foreign governments expressing official “concern” for the stability of the US political system after Wednesday’s Capitol chaos.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters Thursday that the whole episode and surreal images coming out of DC lays bare fault lines in American democracy, according to Russian media.

Russia Unironically Chastises US As "Not Up To Modern Democratic Standards"

Akin to Chinese state media, now busy having a field day over calling out Washington’s hypocrisy and ‘double standards’, Zakharova mocked the “archaic” American electoral system and underscored the fragility of the United States.

“The electoral system in the US is archaic and does not meet modern democratic standards, creating opportunities for numerous violations, and American media has become an instrument of political struggle,” she said. Zakharova expressed Russia’s desire that “the friendly American people will experience this dramatic moment in their own history with dignity.”

Putin has not personally weighed in, but senior Russian lawmaker Konstantin Kosachyov along with some others have made bold statements. Kosechyov, who is chair of the Russian upper house’s foreign affairs committee, posted a statement on Facebook saying:

“The losing side has more than enough grounds to accuse the winner of falsifications – it is clear that American democracy is limping on both feet.”

He added: “I say this without a shadow of gloating. America no longer charts a course and therefore has lost all rights to set it – and even more so to impose it on others.”

Indeed for Pelosi all roads are perpetually leading to Putin, apparently.
