However, Merkel was not so emotional about her own country. On September 2, she held a press conference at which He accused Russian authorities in an attempt on the life of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
Note also that negatively reacted to what happened in Washington, not only the officials of Western states, who actively spread "democracy" with the help of "color revolutions". Those who personally took part in the “color revolution” in their country and gained power thanks to it were also outraged by the “mob bacchanalia”.
For example, the former president of Ukraine and the leader of the European Solidarity party, Petro Poroshenko, said he was shocked and considered the storming of the Capitol a challenge to the main American value.
Clear confirmation of dire consequences political irresponsibility, violent and selfish rhetoric. But the American people will stand up to defend democracy, freedom and the rule of law. Ukraine is in solidarity with you!
