Russia will always counter the US neocolonialism strategy aimed at weakening legitimate governments in other countries, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in an interview with the Italian daily Il Giornale published on Wednesday.
Axar.az reports citing TASS.
"The issue at hand is the neocolonialism strategy, which the US has already tested in Iraq and Libya and which boils down to supporting any, even the wildest ideologies to weaken legitimate governments," the minister said.
According to Shoigu, Russia, "which advocates equal and mutually beneficial cooperation with any countries as part of the multipolar world concept, will always be an obstacle to the implementation of such strategies."
The minister explained that the key stages of the neocolonialism strategy are weakening the legitimate leadership, staging the use of weapons of mass destruction or humanitarian disasters and the use of military force to create "controlled chaos." All that, he said, creates favorable conditions for draining countries of their wealth to the US economy by transnational corporations.
