Russia Calls U.S. “An Enemy”

by Vern Evans

The Kremlin has referred the United States as “an enemy”, using more harsh language than it had in the past. Previously, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov referred to the ruling class in Washington and its allies as “unfriendly states” or “opponents.”

The use of the term “enemy” is definitely a step up, and one the U.S. wholeheartedly deserves for its involvement as a proxy in Russia’s war with Ukraine.

Washington’s refusal to allow former U.S. marine, United Nations weapons inspector, and Russia Today contributor Scott Ritter to travel to St. Petersburg was “the latest manifestation of the rabid campaign to prevent U.S. citizens from interacting with the Russian Federation.” This would only be “understandable” if it was somehow related to his former intelligence status, Peskov told journalists on Tuesday, according to a report by RT. 

“We are now an enemy country for them – much like they are for us,” Peskov said while acknowledging that restrictions applying to former intelligence officers, especially on travel “to a hostile country,” are common across the world.

“The point is not that they are helping our enemy, but that they are our enemy,” the Russian president Vladimir Putin said in January. He was arguing that the conflict between Moscow and Kiev was orchestrated by Western elites who seek to inflict a “strategic defeat” on Russia.

If the West is truly Russia’s enemy, how much time to we have before Moscow begins to offer Washington the “Ukraine treatment?”
