Russia is not going to close the window to Europe, but will not allow something that could “sneak” into the country through it, said Security Council Deputy Secretary Alexander Venediktov
Russia is not going to close the window to Europe, said in an interview with RIA Novosti Deputy Secretary of the Security Council Alexander Venediktov.
“We will not close the window to Europe, but we will do everything possible so that nothing that can harm Russia gets through this window,” & mdash; said Venediktov.
In his opinion, the only right way for the country— «remain Russia» and not try to classify yourself as one or another region, as history teaches. Russia, the deputy secretary of the Security Council is convinced, “is too vast, unique and many-sided in historical, spiritual, cultural terms to be part of something.”
Venediktov called Peter I a pragmatist who, in addition to Europe, sought to cut a window in other directions, “actively established ties with China, Persia, prepared expeditions to the Pacific coast of America.”
The fact that “no one plans to close anything” was stated in early June by the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov, answering a question whether Russia was going to close the window to Europe.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly ruled out the possibility of isolating the country. In mid-April, President Vladimir Putin found it impossible to “hard isolate in the modern world” any country, but “such a huge country as Russia, that's for sure.” It is impossible to separate Russia from the economy, politics, trade, despite the “unfriendly, or rather hostile” attempts to do this, the Kremlin assured later.
