Reaction to Sergeya Lavrova visit to the United States turned out to be just as absurd as the entire American political life the last few months. US media are angry at Russia, published a photograph of the meeting with Trump, name-calling and the Russian Minister trampistom and scum. The degree of hatred as his own President and the heads of Russia reached there a clinical level.
Sergey Lavrov spoke to Trump just 40 minutes, but the meeting was not invited to the American press. It happens - either a new president or his secretary of state Tillerson not too favor the media.
This is understandable. For their love? Trump methodically poisoned for nearly two years, and the Secretary of State, worked all his life in the oil industry and to address the real issues with real people do not consider it necessary to PR. And most importantly: everything to do with relations with Russia, the very same press did for Trump's so toxic that even calling reporters to survey protocol considered superfluous.
In addition, the rejection of the invitation of the American press to the Oval Office was also one that was not voiced, but easily readable. A month ago, at Tillerson's meeting with Putin in Moscow, there was no press, either Russian or American. Moreover, from that meeting, not a single photograph appeared. Most likely, the personal photographer of the president still did his job, but the Kremlin decided not to publish photos. Then it could be explained by Moscow's desire to demonstrate its discontent with Washington's actions - a few days before Tillerson's arrival, Trump ordered a missile attack on the Syrian military base. And although Moscow was warned in advance about this (even if the "sudden" strike itself was not agreed upon), the residue still remained. In these circumstances, the refusal to publish photographs of the Russian president and the American guest was deliberately a demonstrative step.
But now, during Lavrov's return visit to Washington, the United States did not seem to need a symmetrical response - and yet there was a scandal with photographs. At first, the American press was offended - for not being invited. Then, albeit unofficially, the White House was offended, also for the fact that Russia had published photos from the meeting. However, you have to be very careful here - the insult of the White House can be just as fake as most of what the American press writes about Trump (not to mention Putin). The source of the information about the offense is the CNN channel, which refers to a high-ranking source in the Trump administration, who allegedly claimed that the White House did not expect the Russian authorities to allow TASS agency to publish photographs taken in the Oval Office during the meeting between Trump and Lavrov. "They deceived us. This is a problem with the Russians - they are lying, "CNN quotes" an angry official from the administration. "
It is interesting not that the Russian photographer Alexander Shcherbak has already told that he took the pictures absolutely legally, and that only a person very far from diplomacy and protocol can imagine the situation of deception of the employees of the presidential administration by Lavrov's employees. If the Americans let a Russian photographer and one of their own (the official photographer Trump) go to a meeting and did not discuss the ban on publishing photographs with Lavrov's assistants, then there is nothing to talk about at all. And the ban was not - this was written directly by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, quite reasonably expressed doubts in the very fact of "indignation": "
"Is CNN thinks that anyone would believe that the channel currently has a reliable" sources in the White House? " This is the funniest thing in all this is not a funny story ".
But this is not the limit - "Washington Post" in all seriousnessпишет, that the admission of a Russian photographer to the Oval Office is a threat to national security. After all, in this way, Russian special services could carry wiretapping devices disguised in cameras and other electronics. That's the former CIA deputy director David Cohen says that the decision to start with the equipment of a Russian photographer in the heart of the White House was wrong, and to the assurances of the White House that all Russian equipment was carefully checked, other experts object that a standard inspection of visitors may not detect modern spy devices.
Of course, it was already possible to get used to that level of absurdity that accompanies all attempts to discredit Trump through "Russian connections". But every time, when faced with a new twist of the imagination of the American "beaters Trump", you are amazed. It is clear that the reflection that Trump inflicted damage to the security of the United States, met with Lavrov and Kislyak, will not leave a deep trace in the minds of ordinary Americans, but nevertheless, the sediment will remain, as they say. Americans watch the TV channel, according to which they are told openly that "these Russians always lie". And they say, as it were, on behalf of the people of Trump - that is, they attribute to the administration what she did not say.
And the goal is clear. More precisely, the two goals.
The first, unchanged, though not working, was to discredit Trump himself before the Americans as a "Russian candidate." The second, related to it, is to block all the possibilities of the US-Russian dialogue. And in this sense, the globalist minded part of the American establishment - in whose hands the overwhelming majority of the US media is - is waging war simultaneously with both Trump and Putin. Therefore, Lavrov's arrival became such a symbolic crossing of two lines of fire. The attack on Trump and the attack on Russia came together at a time when in the Oval Office there were two goals of globalists' blow: Trump and Putin's representative Lavrov. The first meeting of the new US president with the representative of Russia caused the closure of the entire propaganda machine.
Hence, such an unprecedentedArticleAs appeared in Politico «Winning Russian dance in the Oval Office," written by Susan Glasser. Paphos article is that if "at the Trump is no clear policy on Russia, the Putin definitely have a clear policy in relation to the United States." The uniqueness of this text is that Lavrov called him a bastard and trampistom and the leaders of the two countries actually put on the same level, one level, the level of enemies. That's just for whom they are the enemies? For supranational powers and elites are equally hated Trump and Putin.
Glasser calls Lavrov "scum" with reference to anonymous American diplomats.
"In recent years, I have repeatedly and in detail questioned American officials about Lavrov ... That's what the Republican John Negroponte told me in 2013, who worked as an American representative to the UN at the time when Lavrov was representing Russia there, and under Bush headed the national intelligence service USA: "If he has moral principles, then my Geiger counter did not fix them. His morality is a Russian state. " Approximately the same thing I heard on Wednesday from the former high-ranking officials from the Obama administration, who told me about their recent meetings with Lavrov.
On a personal level, American diplomats all polovno liking Lavrov. "He's an absolute bastard," the Bush administration official told me, giving an interview for Foreign Policy. But the opinion of the official Obama, which he said on Wednesday: "He's a disgusting son of a bitch. He tirelessly scolds and hurts others, he is unpleasant and full of sarcasm. His job was to scold, vilify and intimidate us and Secretary of State Kerry. He constantly sought to give us the Russian point of view. It was not about defeating America. The fact is that Russia can not win if it has to make at least some compromises. "
Citing these statements of Lavrov, Glasser Delano wonders - "it was incredible and amazing moments. It was not that the former high-ranking officials speak of the foreign ministers of other countries, even from those with whom the US has a bad attitude. " Indeed, Lavrov, like Putin, is downright hatred of the globalists - but exactly the same hatred causes them and Trump. And in an article in Politico author compares them also in this way:
"As I said a specialist on Russia, and Putin Trump - great masters of the promotion of alternative reality. But if they try to untwist each other? How can you get along with your partner and build a relationship with him working, asks the specialist if their "commitment to the truth is so weak?"
What is it said here? As if the two presidents are lying, the author wants to make it clear, giving the opinion of a "specialist in Russia". But in fact, this statement characterizes the speaker, that is, the representative of the American establishment. He believes that Trump and Putin create an "alternative reality" - different from reality, which in fact exists. But it is understandable that in the notions of globalizers there is only "an all-conquering doctrine about American global leadership in building a unified world", everything else is a fiction. The failure, or rather - the complete contrariness of the American concept of a unipolar world, is now recognized by all sane politicians of all countries of the world, including Donald Trump.
And Trump's intention to carry out a realistic, that is not hegemonic foreign policy is just scares his opponents. Especially in the case of coordination actions of Russia and the United States, that is, the transition of our relationship to the format of co-confrontation "ordinary" of the great powers, globalist project will finally become an "alternative reality".
