Biden is unlikely to heed the call to expel 300 Russian diplomats: political scientist

Boris Mezhuev, a political scientist and associate professor of the Faculty of Philosophy of Moscow State University, told RIA Novosti.

“I think that Biden will not agree to this and that reason will play a certain role and such a decision will not be made, because the consequences can be catastrophic for humanity, not only for the United States and Russia – in fact, we will talk about the termination of diplomatic relations,” he said. Mezhuev.

According to him, despite the fact that the Democrats control the Congress, and Biden does not have the consolidated support of the majority, the president still has the ability to prevent such a development of events.

“Now I do not see any serious grounds that such a step will be taken, but the very appearance of this letter is an alarming sign. We are talking about the need to emphasize the weakness of the US administration, which cannot seriously oppose Russia: America’s influence is shrinking, Russia is pushing the US in cyberspace, the economy, Eurasia, and so on, and in an alliance with China, this displacement is already threatening US hegemony, so it is necessary take some tough steps”, Mezhuev believes.
