If I can say a few words, by the way, about the hostility towards Russia that one finds here in the United States and maybe in the West in general:
This is a very complex phenomenon. I think a lot of people simply assume this is a Cold War “hangover,” that people don't realize that the Soviet Union and communism don’t exist anymore. And I think that is a part of the problem with some small segment of the population, especially some conservatives who are not particularly well-informed – but I don't think it's the major problem.
During the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century there's been a lot of propaganda by globalists and progressives against the very idea of nationhood -- that believing in the integrity of one's culture, one's history, the religion and values of your nation is somehow inherently bad and is a kind of a chauvinism or even racial supremacy.
