His commentary on the statement of the head of the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Protection Agency Christopher Krebs at the StratcomDC conference in the Swedish Embassy is quoted by the Russian Foreign Ministry.
“Once again, we hear frankly Russophobic, to say the least, attacks on us by senior US officials. Earlier, they already mentioned our “wrong” genes and made other statements that were more suitable for an era that, together with the Americans, put an end to the Missouri battleship in 1945, ”his agency quotes on a page on VKontakte.
Krebs, in particular, said that the “Gerasimov doctrine” and the Russian mentality contain a desire to win at the expense of losing others and “see the whole world on fire.”
“Krebs’s remarks hit the already difficult Russian-American relations. One can see the desire of officials to set up the peoples of our countries against each other. Who will benefit from this? ”The Russian diplomat emphasized.
He also recalled that this “doctrine” does not exist, which has long been proven.
“It is symptomatic that this fake still lives in the heads of high American officials and controls their thoughts and actions,” Antonov said.
Earlier, spokesman for the Russian president Dmitry Peskov compared with “pulp fiction” publication of The New York Times about the secret unit of the GRU to destabilize Europe.
In July, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the United States is “invading” an aggressive Russophobic minority on provocations in PACE.
