MOSCOW (TASS): The current chain of geopolitical and epidemiological problems is not accidental because it is the result of global processes, Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergey Naryshkin said in an interview with TASS.

According to him, empty stands at the Tokyo Olympic venues and strict sanitary requirements for participants in the Games may seem to be illustrating the complicated processes going on in the world.

“The impression grows stronger when you read the news feeds, and apart from reports of sports victories, see news stories about terrible natural events and disasters occurring in various parts of the world,” the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) chief pointed out.

“There are reports of new coronavirus mutations, which are more dangerous for humans. News keeps coming about mounting terrorist threats in the Middle East and in Central Asia.”

“Clearly, this sort of chain of geopolitical and climate events is not an accidental coincidence, but the logical outcome of the global processes that are unfolding in the world right now,” Naryshkin added.

“I mean, first and foremost, the trend of the United States losing its position as the only global superpower.”

“In this situation, the US is unable to resolve the above-mentioned global crises alone,” Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Director emphasized.

“In the face of the pandemic, the US demonstrated utter confusion, which significantly affected its authority in the eyes of the international community,” the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director stressed.

“The US move to withdraw troops from Afghanistan and end the Iraqi military campaign once again proved that the so-called hegemon is no longer able and willing to bear responsibility for resolving complicated political situations and global crises,” Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergey Naryshkin said.

“Perhaps, we are witnessing the birth pangs of a new multipolar world, free of the arrogant hegemony of any state,” the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) chief emphasized.

Moscow and Washington continue to exchange intelligence related to the fight against terrorism but this kind of cooperation has slowed down recently, Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergei Naryshkin said.

“As for our interaction with the [United States] Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA is a partner agency for us, we share intelligence on a wide range of issues related to the global fight against terrorism,” Naryshkin pointed out.

“This is the area where intelligence exchange continues though it may be not as intense as it used to be, but still, we do work together,” he added.

Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) Director Sergey Naryshkin told TASS earlier that he was looking forward to meeting with Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief William Burns.
