At a press conference following the results of 2020, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pointed out that the Russian Federation expects that society in the United States will not allow elites to use censorship in their fight against each other, the consequences could become irreversible for the whole world.
“Let’s hope that, after all, American society will not allow elites to use this obvious censorship in a gross violation of the constitution and international obligations in their fight against each other. But this is the problem of American society. If the American cannot cope with this problem, we will have nothing to do with it. We cannot help it, but then we must be ready, everyone must be ready for the consequences of such a failure of the American state, and the consequences will be very serious on the world stage. I think everyone understands this”, – the Russian Foreign Minister stressed.
