America & some of its so-called ‘democratic’ allies have turned ‘liberal-totalitarian’: Russia’s top spy

By Jonny Tickle | RT | June 24, 2021

The US and some other Western nations held up as “models of liberal democracy” are rapidly turning into totalitarian regimes reminiscent of the Soviet Union, the head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service has claimed.

Speaking on Thursday at the Moscow Conference on International Security, Sergey Naryshkin claimed that there are “almost all signs of a totalitarian dictatorship” in some Western countries, including a “monopoly on the media,” the “police nature of the state,” and the “irremovability of oligarchic elites.”

“It is astonishing to see how the West is trying to divide our diverse world into two completely artificial camps – a supposedly democratic one and a supposedly authoritarian one,” Naryshkin said, noting Russia, China, and Iran have been placed into the second camp, along with NATO ally Turkey and, on some issues, EU member state Poland.

“The US and other so-called models of liberal democracy seem not to notice that they themselves are rapidly turning into a liberal-totalitarian regime,” the chief spook said.

According to Naryshkin, the West’s imposition of ideological attitudes is somewhat reminiscent of the history of the late Soviet Union, in that it doesn’t even believe the values it tries to project abroad.

However, the head spy pointed to the US-Russia summit in Switzerland earlier this month as a potential turning point, noting that he hopes the West will be able to use “the spirit of Geneva to try to build a safer and fairer world.”

Naryshkin’s belief that the West is attempting to split the world into ‘democratic’ and ‘authoritarian’ echoes a statement made by Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu at the same conference on Wednesday.

“Today, a new trend is coming to the fore,” Shoygu said. “The formation of global coalitions, the division of the world into ‘friends’ and ‘strangers.’”

    The USA would do well to rid itself of the scourge of the “Dual Passport holders” embedded within its government, and start making decisions that are in the best interests of the American people(who currently have no influence at all in who wins elections.
    Freedom and Democracy are simply a facade, behind which a powerful clique pull all the strings………And ANYONE in the USA who hasn’t noticed this by now is asleep at the wheel………..

  2. The anglozionazi empire of filth is going down the crud caked bowl of its ignominious history of global genocide and perversion. As the fiat filth IOU Saudi Mercan petroscrip toilet paper dollah collapses and the €urodollah along with it, the rupturing of the Natostan bloc will be unstoppable. The ponzi outhouse is blocked and the oncoming tsunami of toxic derivative garbage will rid the world of the most evil collection of psychopaths that humanity has ever spawned. All the covaids crap that “they” can unleash will not stop the inevitable destruction of the monstrous cabal.
