MOSCOW, September 30 – Novosti. Western Russophobia is nothing but racism, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Western elites deny not only national sovereignty and international law, their hegemony has a pronounced character of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid. They brazenly divide the world into their vassals – into the so-called “civilized countries” – and into all the rest who, according to the plan of today’s Western racists should be added to the list of barbarians and savages. The false labels “rogue country”, “authoritarian regime” are already ready. They stigmatize entire peoples and states, and this is nothing new,” Putin said, speaking in the Kremlin following the results of referendums in the DPR , LPR , Kherson and Zaporozhye regions .
“There is nothing new in this, the Western elites are what they were, and have remained so – colonialists. They discriminate, divide peoples into the first and other grades. We have never accepted and will not accept such political nationalism and racism. And what, if not racism, is Russophobia now spreading all over the world?” – said the President.
