MOSCOW, January 12. /TASS/. The Chairman of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky considers that the latest statements of the elected President of the USA of Donald trump and the candidate for the post of Secretary Rex Tillerson against Russia is more designed for the American audience of the Senate, than determine the vector of foreign policy towards Russia, the new administration of the White house.
“The statements of Donald trump and Rex Tillerson against Russia have not yet been assessed as determining the vector of foreign policy of the new US administration towards Russia. Tillerson held hearings in the Senate, where it is the approval of his candidacy for the post of head of American diplomacy. And among the U.S. congressmen – among Democrats, among Republicans, as recent events show, a fairly strong anti-Russian sentiment. Therefore, the application of the candidate for the post of U.S. Secretary of state, rather, were designed primarily for their audience,” said Slutsky reporters.
