Tensions In Diplomatic Rhetorics Between U.S. And Russia Reach Pre-War Level

On October 20, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov commented on the recent anti-Russia accusations in the US. The diplomat described these accusations as “blantant lies”and stated that they are a part of the ongoing internal political standoff within the US. He also noted that the US “hostility towards Russia and contempt for the rest of the world” will trigger only “an increasingly tougher response”.

“The US government, in an ongoing campaign to frighten the US and international public with tales of “Russian hackers and bloggers”, has accused yet another Russian national of attempting to influence US voters. Spreading blatant lies about the mythical “hand of Moscow” for over two years – since the last presidential election – Washington is now trying to play the same card ahead of the upcoming election day: Americans will elect a new Congress on November 6. 

We have said a number of times that this is a disgraceful smear campaign. It is dictated by a desire of some US politicians to get an advantage in inter-party squabbles and at the same time to pressure Russia. They are using unscrupulous tactics to achieve this, including blatantly fabricated criminal cases with a laughable evidence base.

We realise that Washington is cooking up a pretext to impose their notorious sanctions against our country once again. The United States clearly overestimates its own capabilities. By displaying hostility towards Russia and contempt for the rest of the world, they will only get an increasingly tougher response,” Ryabkov stated, according to the Foreign Ministry website.

Earlier, the US accused a Russian citizen, Elena Husyainava, of attempting to damage the US political system and to intervene in the US epecltion in 2016 and 2018.

It should be noted that the increasingly tought diplomatic rhetorics of both Moscow and Washington as well as hostile US actions against Moscow and an active pro-war propaganda campaign within the US military are openly signaling that the sides may have already launched preparations for a possible military confrontation. This confrontation may take a limited form of the continued proxy war in some regions, like Syria or the Middle East in general. However, in the worst-case scenario, it may trigger a big open regional war.

    The Washington and England will lose all wars against world. The kingdoms of evils will never win and will face shame to be honest. God watching them. That is why God has given strength and power to Russia and China to defend his people and his world from evil brutal encroachers.

    USA goes for the big war against Russia. And it will come in Europe. In nazi-Ukraine.

    • William Warren Conkright

      I believe you are correct about it starting in Nazi Nato occupied Ukraine.. Kiev will lose in 48 hours after the start and the Russian Flag will fly from buildings in Kiev, Mass arrests and elimination of Nazis and Victoria Nuland followers will take place

      • Tore W. Tvedt

        Hope You are right.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Good astute observation. Russia needs to start assisting the Donetsk Republic forces and liberation movements in Odessa region. Ukraine is basically a historic Russian land and the vast majority of so-called Ukrainians will be happy to join mother Russia as NATO thugs and Zionist criminals have given them nothing but misery. Ukraine is a failed bankrupt state that is now terror central for eastern Europe and even training ground for CIA Salafist headchopper darlings. Pretty soon they will be hack-sawing body parts of dissidents in Ukrainian embassies.

        Putin doesn’t press his advantages and he creates more dangerous situations where opponents are emboldened. Ukrainian troops were in disarray and in full retreat, and instead of pressing the advantage and taking places like Maripol and all of Eastern Ukraine, he halted the advance and left it to become what it is, ie a festering situation both in the breakaway regions and in the sea of Azov, when those should have been secure, peaceful areas purged of conflict and under self rule. He does the same in Syria. No armies garner respect with uncertain bugles.

      That is the American plan, a big war in Europe, whilst Americans pass around popcorn and enjoy the show.
      Personally I think New York will be the first place to get vaporized.

  • Padre

    with Trump, who is friend of Russia. how would be with hillary? :)

    • John

      Hey putinbeater. I don’t see President Trump as a friend of Russia. He just does whatever he needs do in the moment.

      • putinbeater

        I always though, that trump IS NOT friend of russia. i think, he is a primitive (pussygrabber) guy, but he does everything for one goal: to keep america in position of hegemony.

      • putinbeater

        you know, during elections the SF and commenters believed, he is friend of russia

        • John

          Not really.

  • PK

    Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, etc vs US. That is where it all will come down to if it really happens. North Korea alone can annihilate the US. That is why there are on-going talks in Korea. Here is a video of North Korean submarine launching a SLBM.

    Keep in mind that North Korean subs are already patrolling US coasts.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Russia needs to start arming Iran. Russia brought this US/Zionist aggression on itself by supporting illegal US wars from Afghanistan, Libya to Iraq. Russia supported the illegal US sanctions on Iran and that only emboldened the US criminals, and soon they made Russia a target of ever increasing US sanctions. The US/Zionist agenda is the destruction of Russia and Putin better wake up. The Russian military is more savvy and on to the US insidious agenda.

  • Jaime

    If there is a “big regional war” where both sides get involved directly, it may eventually escalate to a world war. That this war may be limited to a conventional one is not very probable because of the essentail instability arising from a first-strike doctrine -the United States’.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      There are over 1.5 million Russian and Ukrainian pretend Zionist parasitic “Jews” in Occupied Palestine whose agenda is the destruction of Russia as they did with the USSR by goading the ignorant AmeriKKKan morons into thinking that they can do the same to Russia today. They are in for a shock as Russia today is more homogeneous and the Russian military is back in the game. The US and Zionist parasites covet Russian natural resources and the idiot Yeltsin gave the Jew oligarchs a way in. Russia should focus more on a bold defence and foreign policy and start arming staunch and strong allies like Iran to the hilt. Just a simple transfer of 100 SU-35 would change the regional and global power balance overnight. Iran, Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Syria and Iraq have a population bigger than the defunct Warsaw pact. Also the present Russian allies like Iran and Syria are totally committed to Russia and not that easy to destabilize as the CIA, Zionist endless propaganda and “Radio Free Europe” did with treacherous east European failed states like Poland, Czechs, Hungary etc. Iran and Russia alone have the population of the ex-USSR and far more cohesive.
