Russia rejects U.S. as center of new world order

0 130

Russia has criticized the United States’ president for advocating that Washington should play a central role in shaping a new “world order.” Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov expressed his disagreement with this “American-centric” vision of a new world order, emphasizing the need for a system free from the concentration of global governance in the hands of a single state.

The disagreement arose following a speech by U.S. President Joe Biden, where he highlighted the necessity of the U.S. taking a leading role in establishing a new world order to promote peace. Biden asserted that the previous world order of the last half-century was losing momentum, and he saw an opportunity to unite the world for a more peaceful future.

Peskov’s response reflects a deepening divide between the United States and Russia, two global superpowers at odds over various international issues, including Russia’s conflict in Ukraine and its alliances with U.S. adversaries like Iran and North Korea.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, the United States has imposed extensive sanctions on individuals and entities linked to the Kremlin and provided Ukraine with substantial humanitarian, financial, and military aid.

Tensions have escalated, with President Biden drawing parallels between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Hamas, a Palestinian group governing the Gaza Strip that the U.S. designates as a “terrorist” organization. Biden has characterized both as threats to neighboring democracies, further emphasizing the gulf between the two nations.
