“The Americans decided that they’ve won the Cold War and they are still intoxicated by this “triumph,”he said.
“I don’t want to praise the current Russian authorities too much. It also makes a lot of mistakes, but today the danger comes from the US stance,” Gorbachev said.
Russia went through extremely difficult times after the collapse of the USSR and the Americans took advantage of the situation, but now the situation has changed, Gorbachev said.
“It’s good that the president [Vladimir Putin] now cares about security, defense capability, development of new weapons and modernization of the military. We are now well armed. And if necessary we can strike back. But this isn’t the case right now. There are signs of a new Cold War and this process must be stopped,” Gorbachev said.
What is happening now is “unacceptable,” Gorbachev said, adding that “fences are being built around us, pushing [the international community] towards the anti-Russia path.
The rise of anti-Russian moods in various countries – including Germany, which had good relations with Moscow in recent decades – always happens “in the presence and due to instigation from the American side,” Gorbachev said.”
