NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that those responsible for the storming of the Capitol in Washington should be punished, reports TASS.
According to him, what happened in the US capital is unacceptable. The results of the presidential election must be respected, Stoltenberg stressed.
“It is important that all those responsible are punished. I am confident that the democratic institutions of the United States will cope with this, ”he said.
We will remind, riots in the Capitol broke out on January 6. Congressmen were busy validating Joseph Biden’s victory over incumbent President Donald Trump when a crowd burst into the building. The legislators had to be evacuated. Two hours later, law enforcement officers ousted the Trumpists, but bloodshed was not without – one of Trump’s supporters was shot by a policeman.
The Democrats accused the head of the White House of inciting mutiny. As a result, the House of Representatives impeached Trump, which was voted for by some Republican congressmen.
