Completely unmarked officers in riot gear holding protesters blocks away from the White House. No badges. No insignias. No name tags. Nothing. Refused to tell us who they’re with. #DCprotest #DCprotests pic.twitter.com/c4lFFCsX48

These unknown people McFaul and compared with the “little green men” in Crimea, saying: “We don’t do that”.
“that’s Right, wrote in response on Twitter Pushkov. You occupy the whole country, as in Iraq; destroy the other, causing mayhem and the markets of slaves, as in Libya; bring instability to the regions, giving rise to terrorists, such as ISIS (banned in Russia); supported jihadists in the fight against the legitimate government in Syria. And you’re still talking about Russia? Absurd.”
during the ensuing discussion Pushkov in response to McFaul’s words that “all the time criticizes its own government for wrong actions” explained that it is not criticism. According to him, the criticism did not change anything in the acts of U.S. aggression in Iraq and Libya.
“the Problem is that the United States over the past 20 years made a lot of offenses in many different countries to Russia to teach international law. Keep it yourself and only then will be able to teach others,” — wrote the Russian Senator.
The issue is not criticism — criticism did not change a thing in US aggressions in Iraq and Libya. The problem is that the USA did too many wrongs to a number of countries in the last 20 years to teach Russia international law. Abide to it — and only then can you teach others. https://t.co/VNcjHYjruS
