The Ambassador spoke about the "everyday" Russophobia in the United States

Russian Ambassador to Washington Antonov said that Russophobia in the United States manifests itself at the household level

Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov said that Russophobia in the United States has already begun to manifest itself at the household level, he told Newsweek.

According to the diplomat, enterprises that are in any way connected with Russia – restaurants and cafes of Russian cuisine, shops, centers for the study of Russian culture, Orthodox cemeteries – are subject to constant attacks and acts of vandalism. In addition, as Antonov noted, in a number of states they want to ban the sale of Russian goods, and Russian-speaking citizens are harassed at work, up to being forced to quit.

“Such actions not only contradict fundamental international legal documents, including the UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, but also violate the principles of American law on the inadmissibility of discrimination based on nationality,” the ambassador concluded.

Earlier, Antonov compared the attempt to “cancel Russia” with the ideas of racial superiority. He stressed that even during the Cold War, countries did not stop cultural, educational and scientific contacts.
