Tensions between Russia and the United States have been mounting that the global political situation turned even more dangerous than the Cold War, according to experts. More importantly, the two countries have been aggressively blaming each other for the worsening situation. Will the two worlds go into World War 3?
Relations between US and Russia have hit a new low last Friday after the former accused Moscow of war crimes. The accusations come after a “sustained bombardment of the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.”
US And Russia Are Out To Destroy Each Other
Previously, US, British and French ambassadors to the UN got out of the Security Council emergency meeting when their Syrian counterparts tried defending the air strikes that concluded the fragile ceasefire even just after a few days.
“It’s a fallacy to think that this is like the Cold War. The current times are different and more dangerous,” said Frank-Walter Steinmeir for German tabloid newspaper Bild via The Independent. The writer also tried blaming Russia mostly for the ensuring conflict between East and West.
“In a world with many regional conflicts and the waning influence of the great powers, the world is unpredictable.
“But despite all the frustration, disappointment and deep suspicion on both sides it is important to continue to look for ways to put an end to the madness in Syria.”
Russia Blames US For Threatening Its Security
Furthermore, as if to add more fuel to the fire, Russia also blamed US actions for threatening its national security.
“We have witnessed a fundamental change of circumstances when it comes to the aggressive Russophobia that now lies at the heart of U.S. policy towards Russia,” Yahoo quoted Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
“It’s not just a rhetorical Russophobia, but aggressive steps that really hurt our national interests and pose a threat to our security.”
