U.S. obsession with its geopolitical ambitions seen as catastrophic for the world

MINSK, 18 May (BelTA) - The U.S. obsession with advancing its geopolitical ambitions is pushing the planet to the brink of disaster, Chairman of the House of Representatives Vladimir Andreichenko said at a meeting of the Council of the CSTO Parliamentary Assembly in Minsk on 18 May, BelTA has learned.

"The obsession of the United States with advancing its ambitious geopolitical plans while deliberately ignoring the interests of other states is putting the planet on the brink of a global catastrophe. One of the basic principles of ensuring collective security - its indivisibility - has been violated," Vladimir Andreichenko said.

According to him, "we must not allow to turn our countries into carriers of other people's values, or sacrifice the future of peoples for the sake of U.S. pseudo-democracy."

"Today we are facing a strategic choice. Either we unite, as our grandfathers and great-grandfathers once did in the fight against fascism and jointly oppose the colonial policy of the United States and the collective West, or we turn into a raw material appendage of transnational corporations, having lost our political independence," he said.

He also took note of the recent celebration of the anniversary of the Great Victory, which became a symbol of the resilience and courage of the peoples of the USSR in the fight against Nazism. Belarus reverently honors the feat of front-line heroes and home front workers, participants of the partisan movement and the underground fighters, all those who sacrificed themselves in the name of truth and justice. In those harsh years, the country survived thanks to the spiritual unity and cohesion, Vladimir Andreichenko emphasized.

He believes that these qualities are again in demand in the modern world, where the word "war" has returned to everyday use.
