US Is Preparing War, Russia Is Preparing To Defend Itself: Top Russian Diplomat

Illustrative image

On October 26, deputy director of the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Department of Nonproliferation and Arms Control Andrei Belousov stated that the US is preparing for a war and Russia is ready to defend itself. He commented on the US withdrawal from the INF treaty by saying that it’s a clear sign that the US is “preparing a war”.

“Recently at a meeting [of the committee], the US stated that Russia is preparing for war. Yes, Russia is preparing for war, I can confirm it,” he said after a failed UN First Committee vote on Russia’s resolution in support of the INF. “We are preparing to defend our homeland, our territorial integrity, our principles, our values, our people — we are preparing for such a war.”

Linguistically, this difference is in just one word, both in Russian and in English: Russia is preparing for war, and the US is preparing a war,” Belousov said. “Otherwise, why would the United States withdraw from the treaty, build up its nuclear potential [and] adopt a new nuclear doctrine?”

Earlier on the same  day, Russia introduced a draft resolution to preserve the INF to the UN General Assembly’s First Committee, tasked with disarmament and international security. Nonetheless, the First Committee voted against reviewing the draft, with 55 countries voting against the draft resolution, 31 nations supporting it, and 54 abstaining from the vote.

    US is permanently at war somewhere peace doesnt agree with them.

    • TiredOfBsToo

      When you speak of the US government, you could say that peace is not in it’s DNA. When it comes to values ascribed to by said government, they can be witnessed by the company it keeps, i.e. Saudi Arabia, Israel and the human rights it practices in Yemen and Palestine; these are it’s REAL values..

      Very jewish of them dont you agree?

    Every Country has a RIGHT to DEFEND it Self from AGGRESSION

      Unless its US aggression as that is ‘Democratic aggression and the murder of another nations people for their good ‘ :)

    ” Nonetheless, the First Committee voted against reviewing the draft, with 55 countries voting against the draft resolution, 31 nations supporting it, and 54 abstaining from the vote.”

    I think that this is the bigger story. The Russians are working towards peace and the world should be siding with them. Instead they dismiss the draft on a technicality.

    “Thus, fifty-five countries, including Argentina, Greece, the United Kingdom, Germany, Greece, Spain, Italy, Canada, the United States, Ukraine, and France, voted against, citing as a reason procedural violations as the document was submitted beyond the due date.”

      All vassal states run by comprador stooges. Until there is a war against the oligarchy not just a war between capitalist nothing will change.

      • Snowglobe

        Exactly! These are traitors to their countries and the populations.

    • 1691

      The voting proves that 31 countries showed a middle finger to usa, 54 were not brave enough to do it but did not agree and only 55 displayed openly their fear.
      Great!

      • Snowglobe

        Yes, it looked like a “cluster f*ck ” kinda mess to me too. ;-)

    • TiredOfBsToo

      “..was submitted..”

      Those same countries would’ve voted the same way regardless. What the Empire dictates, the vassals comply with.

      • You can call me Al

        I think in this instance, there was something more to it; maybe Russia’s draft was not up to scratch this time.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          Russia is separating friends from foes and who has the balls to stand for itself and whose ruled by NWO puppets. Judgement day is coming and open hunting season.

          • You can call me Al

            Good point, good point indeed.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          Perhaps, but it still wouldn’t have made a difference with those countries listed. I’m still amazed that the EU has not told the US that nukes will not be allowed on European soil. Why is it that these vassal states are willing to be nuked for US psychopathic ambitions?

          • FlorianGeyer

            Because the vast majority of ‘news’ they (the US vassal states ) read or hear is about pure trivia or IF world affairs are discussed they are slanted with NATO propaganda.

      • Snowglobe

        It infuriates me. This is why I drag these things out. To get more attention. My country is working against peace and for the globalists.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          Me too (not to be confused with that loony group currently all the rage in the country). That’s what keeps me posting. Add to that, that the country is now going to be paying to build Israel’s infrastructure and yet our infrastructure is falling apart.

    • You can call me Al
      • Snowglobe

        Yes, that is the one that I was looking at.

  • so

    “Yosemite Sam” an absolute joke of a human being. An absolute disgrace.

  • slayern2

    Russia should strike them first…. “If a man does not strike first, he will be the first struck.” Do not repeat the same mistakes from 1941. or 1812.

    In the responce of every village idiot within US; the sound of silence.
    You see their is an epidemic within US and it is called: HeadUpTheirAss, HUTA, and the major psychological opinion is that it is a genetic mutation of long standing.
    Those people outside of US who do not have such an abnormal genetic trait understand US has been preparing to launch a war against Russia for last 40 years.
    The evidence , blatant, was especially notable by the increase in size and expansion of NATO forces all of whom have inched up in a surrounding tactic with all there weapons pointed at Russia.
    The non-ability to compete financialy by those NATO nations industrial financials with
    Russian economic expansion has caused them to act as group in economic warfare, psyching their population into believing the Russians Are Coming by a full bore attack in media outlets is but another preperation for their comiing military attack.
    Another indicator is US hype in all the ex-soviet bloc nations that no matter how poor you are they must indebt themselves for 30 years into getting loans to buy US war machines and point them at Russia.They get extra money by accepting wealthy US based soldiers, so their pimps and whores will get rich.
    It is not just US getting ready to militarily be prepare for war against Russia but damn near every nation in the UN.
    While UN members do not have quite the same genetic malformation as HUTA, they have a syndrone of it BendOverAnd Kiss US Ass, BOAKUSA.

    • HardHawk

      You got it right and we are waiting for them.

  • Davki

    Well, Russia is using the usual two-pronged approach nations use that go to war or are at war: “we’re a peaceful people, but have the right to defend ourselves”. “We’re a morally superior force that naturally has the right to go to war where our vital interests are at stake”. Now, the US does the same, of course. So, Russia certainly feels threatened but tries to hide that it too has gone on the offensive is waging more and more wars.

    Just stopping by here to say that the headline is a textbook example of wartime propaganda.
