John McCain again criticized Russia

August 4 2008

U.S. presidential candidate from the Republicans Senator John McCain has once again made a criticism of Russia. According to him, democracy in Russia is much worse than in China.

"I do not think China is regressing as Russia. We have better opportunities for work and cooperation with China - said McCain in an interview with political observer of the Washington Post, David Broder. - I see steady progress in Russia more and more suppression rights and the disappearance of the appearance of democracy "- McCain said.

As noted political observer, interviewed John McCain shows that in the event of his coming to the White House led by the Administration would treat China and Russia in different ways, according to RIA Novosti.

John McCain has previously promised in the case came to power, to take a tough stance against Russia. In particular, he recently called for its deletion from the G8. At the same time, his rival in the presidential race Barack Obama has pryamoprotivopolozhnuyu position, considering that the nuclear and global security can not be resolved without Russia. "

This position of Barack Obama and his supporters are not only annoying the McCain campaign, but some Russian politicians. U.S. Presidential candidate of the Democratic Party Barack Obama should take a tougher stance towards Russia, says the leader of the FMG Garry Kasparov, writing about this rather lengthy article in the newspaper The Wall Street Journal. " Kasparov believes that the U.S. should be more strictly belongs to Russia. "Appeasement regimes such as those who are in power in Russia and China, only strengthens the position of the hostile and anti-democratic forces" - he said.

The author believes that Barack Obama is ready to "continue the destructive policy of double standards" of the current U.S. administration. But the presidential candidate of the Republicans, John McCain, by contrast, has enough imagination to say that if something broke, we must try to fix it, "- says Kasparov.
