“To us, it looks as though [George W.] Bush, [Dick] Cheney and [Donald] Rumsfeld never left the White House,” says Alexei Pushkov, chair of the State Duma’s international affairs committee.

“It’s basically the same policy, as if US leaders had learned nothing and forgotten nothing in the past decade. They want to topple foreign leaders they regard as adversaries, without even making the most basic calculations of the consequences.

I am at a complete loss to understand what the US thinks it is doing,”
