Zakharova called pathetic US attempts to arrogate to itself the right to determine democracies

Maria Zakharova: “Summit for Democracy” is confrontational maintaining strategic independence from the collective West. Thus, at a briefing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the upcoming Summit for Democracy, organized at the initiative of Washington, the correspondent reports.

According to the diplomat, the United States arrogates to itself the right to determine who is worthy to be called a democracy and who is not. “It looks cynical and pitiful against the background of obvious problems with the state of democracy and human rights in the United States itself and in the West in general,” she said.
