Journalist Vladimir Pozner in a conversation with the TV channel RTVI announced the loss of the US image of “the best country in the world” and “beacon of democracy.”
“Representatives of the United States often extolled the country and set it up as an example, but now American democracy can no longer be presented as a model,” the journalist quotes RIA Novosti.
Posner said the events of recent months have damaged the image that Washington has tried to cultivate for decades. And it will have an effect for a long time. It won’t happen tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, the journalist added.
Riots in the United States began after Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6, which resulted in the interruption of the work of Congress for several hours. During the riots, two people were killed, three more died from causes not related to violence. Earlier it was reported that the US authorities opened almost 100 criminal cases in connection with the riots in Washington. The congressmen also began their own investigation of the incident. This was announced by four committees of the US House of Representatives – Intelligence, Homeland Security, Judicial, and Oversight and Reform.
