According to Berezovets, once again Russia can become a laughingstock, since it initiates criminal proceedings basing on a satirical post written by a political analyst Yuri Romanenko in respect of Russian journalism, Joinfo.ua reports.
Berezovets notes that Russia wants to become America – to have military bases in dozens of countries, to conduct military operations in the framework of its foreign policy doctrine in thousands of kilometers and carry out "color revolutions" by overthrowing objectionable regimes in all the continents.
However, the political analyst stresses that Russia makes a fundamental mistake by evaluating only the external manifestations, and not understanding the deep essence of American global leadership. "Over the centuries, America has developed its scale of values and successfully sold it to dozens of countries. The quintessence of these values is the principle of equal opportunities, based on free competition of ideas and domination of personal things over the state ones. All Russia has learned from all this is that America is respected because of fear of it, because of the capacity of its judiciary, military and political system that can reach virtually any villain, despite their social status," said Berezovets.
He adds that the United States has deserved reputation of a superpower, because "everyone knows that in the event of threats to the lives of the American citizens, America will send anyone, including the 6th Fleet division or Navy Seals, while Russia will limit to shooting the breeze basing on the charges concocted out of thin air and will look like a laughingstock once again."
It should be recalled that the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case against the Ukrainian political analyst Yuri Romanenko for "incitement to murder of Russian journalists." Representatives of the Russian IC argue that at the beginning of April 2015 the Ukrainian political analyst Yuri Romanenko was at a conference at Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States). There, he allegedly said publicly that "the Armed Forces of Ukraine should be carefully and selectively destroy the Russian journalists covering the situation in the south-east of Ukraine."
