Not the phenomenon, and ideology are the real threats to the modern world. This opinion was expressed by the head of the international Committee of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
In his article published in the newspaper “Izvestia”, the Senator highlighted three such ideological fundamentalism — Islamist (ISIS*), Communist (North Korea) and the liberal globalizatsii (part of Western elites).
Kosachev noted that the carriers of these ideologies have the ability to harm everyone else, ready for this, as found in its ideology a moral justification for forceful measures and have a tendency to blame others for their problems, the “infidels”.
“The response to the Trump before and after his election to the first office in the United States, the current well-organized and very dirty campaign in Europe against the “populists”, the whole history of the confrontation between Russia, from Sochi Olympics to “cyber attacks” from Ukraine to Syria, — all this shows that in some cases we are not dealing with the Democrats, and people of the Messianic and sectarian thinking, not disdain for their “faith” any methods”, — says the Senator.
Earlier Kosachev expressed the opinion that in the United States about Russia “is, without exaggeration, hysteria”.
* “Islamic state” (ISIS) is a terrorist organization banned in Russia.
