This view was expressed by the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Frants Klintsevich, reports “Parlamentskaya Gazeta” on Thursday, April 6.
In his opinion, the Haley, who voiced this idea yesterday at a meeting of the security Council, do not consider yourself a major expert on Russia in the U.S. administration.
The Senator reminded that previously, Haley was criticized Russia at the annual forum “Women in the modern world.” “One is forced to recall the ancient Roman politician Cato the Elder, that every speech in the Senate, regardless of its content, was finishing with these words: “However, I believe that Carthage must be destroyed”,” — said Klintsevich.
April 5, Hayley announced that the American President Donald trump inclined to see Russia as a problem. “What they did to Crimea and Ukraine… And they covered Assad — that in all these things we give them to descent will not give”, — explained a representative of the US administration.
In mid-March, she said that we should not treat lightly the Russian threat.
The U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved Haley as Ambassador to the UN at the end of January. At the same time, some senators expressed concern about the lack of her experience in foreign policy.
