The Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on defense Yury Shvytkin in an interview commented on the decision of the US House of Representatives make the laws “On the protection of the US security from the aggression of the Kremlin” and “On openness of Vladimir Putin”.
“Washington acts according to the rules that are clear only to it, which almost always contradict the norms of international law. At the same time, aggressive actions against the American people are taken not by Russia, but by the US leadership, which is trying to make Moscow an imaginary enemy to distract citizens from domestic political conflict situations”, he said.
According to the Deputy, “in Russia there are relevant laws, according to which even senior officials submit declarations of their income”.
“Everything is quite transparent and is governed by the laws of our country, not by the whims of another state, which is a direct interference in the domestic Affairs of Russia”, — concluded Shvytkin.
Earlier, the US House of Representatives adopted two bills aimed at countering Russia.
