Americans are unhappy with the promotion of Russian culture in the United States

The struggle with the Russian language and culture has become a trend in the West, which can be regarded as a civilizational confrontation. For example, recently, State Duma deputy from "United Russia" Ingu Yumashev, who flew to the United States to participate in the Fort Ross Dialogue forum, at the New York airport for more than an hour interrogated FBI officer. And so, in the United States, another unfriendly gesture was made to Russia.

The American daily New York Times published an article accusing the Carmel Institute of Russian History and Culture at the American University (Washington University - a private liberal arts university) in Washington. The article expressed outrage that in the United States, Russian culture and history are presented in a “too” positive way. Moreover, the material contained the statements of a number of persons who claim that the Karmelovsky Institute is in close relations with the Russian Embassy in the United States.

The Russian embassy in the United States has already responded to such an outrageous publication. The head of the diplomatic mission, Anatoly Antonov, said that "the amount of Russophobia in the American media in recent years has been unprecedented."

Antonov stressed that they are trying to present Russian culture as a “powerful tool” with which Moscow supposedly “manipulates American public opinion”. After that, the ambassador pointed to the complete lack of evidence of such accusations and urged the Americans to “stop looking political benefit and take into account the long-term interests of the two countries. "

Antonov is sure that a “deeper cultural understanding” will benefit both Russia and the United States. Moreover, the words of the ambassador were published in the New York Times.

It must be recalled that in the West, in particular in the USA, another anti-Russian campaign, called the “fight against Russian propaganda,” is now underway. True, hysteria has not yet reached the level that was during the Cold War, but very close to it. For example, RT and Sputnik are hindering the work of the United States, and they also announced the “Russian propaganda” mini-series “Trotsky,” acquired by Netflix.

    Our journalists in the USA pose the right questions, from which the Americans’s brains begin to boil, and the State Department falls into a stupor and goes numb. I think that even the Minister of Education can be appointed the right journalist for us and it certainly won’t be worse!

    Well, and who is to blame that your story is sheer negativity, banditry, fraud, murder and war. The history of any country, against the backdrop of the United States, seems white and fluffy.

    American society has been raised by Russophobia for many years. Of course, they do not know that it was the Russians who ensured their victory in the civil war, destroying the English fleet. What can I say if 25% (every fourth American!) Claims that the sun revolves around the earth, and this is not a story that, as they write and say everywhere, the winner writes. In the 70s of the last century, a Pravda correspondent who lived there for 15 years describes a conversation in the yard with a neighbor: “What do you Russians know about World War II? So during the war I could not buy a chicken for my dog. "

    We are in the trenches, white and fluffy, and around the enemies ....
    Unless the senators, deputies, officials and families calmly go there and live .. they’re not in the trenches, but in chocolate ... But in the social networks, the Americans don’t know that they have a struggle with the Russian language, it turns out ...

    - Yeah. And American "culture and history" in Russia in particular and in the rest of the world in general does not seem to be served this way ... The products of American culture in this sense, in my opinion, have already "hammered" almost everything in the world. Maybe in Southeast Asia, somewhere or in Africa, the way of life and cultural space can still be called original, I don't know. But in all that is called the "Western world", throughout Europe, the Middle East and Russia, everything has long existed practically according to American patterns, they watch and listen for the most part or directly American media products or their local derivatives, and culture , and history, and even our own, is most often absorbed in its American presentation. So what are we talking about? To preserve this culture, it will be already for happiness ...
