Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov.
WASHINGTON, 5 Dec – to Confront the global threats of the Russian Federation and the United States can only together, as it was during the Second world war, said Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Anatoly Antonov.
“The second world war clearly demonstrated that effective counteraction to the existential threats is only possible with cooperation and coordination,” said Antonov, speaking at the gala evening in the Russian Embassy on the occasion of the 77th anniversary of the Soviet counterattack near Moscow.
“It was in those weeks, the USSR and the USA were bound by a common goal – the fight against Nazi aggression. 11 December 1941 – six days after the beginning of the counteroffensive of red Army near Moscow – Hitler declared war on the United States,” the Ambassador reminded.
