"Would not climb better" Pushkov ridiculed the words of the historian of the United States to Russia

The head of the Federation Council Commission for information policy and media relations, Alexei Pushkov criticized the words of the Dean of the faculty of African American studies at Princeton University Eddie Glod about "racism in Russia".

Earlier in interview to the German newspaper Spiegel Glod said that "panic and manic attempts to" politicians to stop the protests in the United States testify to "the dying wheezes of a dying old America." Speaking of racism, the expert expressed the view that this issue also exists in Europe and, in particular, in Russia.

The Senator of the Federation Council this wording has caused confusion.

One of the policemen, who for a few minutes he felt a knee in the neck of Floyd, charged with murder, three others of aiding and abetting the murder.
