20231022 The United States is leading the world down into the deepest abyss, while recent US government decisions illustrate the serious illness afflicting American society as a whole and its loss of the last shreds of moral restraint, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said.
20231022 "The US-led world continues to slide headfirst into the deepest possible abyss.
20231022 Decisions are being made that clearly show not only how the decision-makers are hopelessly afflicted with mental illness, but have also lost the very last shreds of moral restraint .
20231022 [I mean] both substantive high-level decisions and minor decisions, but they clearly cry out that [American] society in its entirety is seriously sick," the senior politician wrote on his Telegram channel.
20231022 Commenting on a remark by US President Joe Biden, who described the US funds being funneled abroad for the death of other people far away from the United States as "a smart investment," Medvedev said that such thinking went "beyond the bounds of good and evil".
20231022 Separately, he pointed to remarks by French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, who, he said, "did not hesitate" to accuse French star footballer Karim Benzema of being connected to a Muslim political group merely due to the football player’s expression of his condolences over the death of civilians in Gaza.
20231022 It seems that, "one can offer condolences to the Israelis, but not to the Palestinians.
20231022 There should be no pity for them .
20231022 Children, women, the elderly are just consumables," Medvedev said".
20231022 The Intifada will be eternal," he concluded, warning that the use of weapons of all types may soon escalate to nuclear arms.

20231022 Russia plans to request another meeting of the UN Security Council in order to discuss solutions to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said on the Solovyov Live television channel.
20231022 "We will definitely convene another Security Council meeting.
20231022 As practice has shown, no one but us dares to do it," he said.
20231022 "As for the resolution, I do not know how soon we will reach the stage when we again try to adopt a resolution.
20231022 Probably, we should first go through the General Assembly, which is a UN body where all 193 member-states of the organization are present, and there is such a rule that should the Security Council fail to perform its functions in preserving peace and security, this issue goes to the General Assembly," Polyansky said.
20231022 According to the diplomat, the tenth emergency special session of the General Assembly on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is scheduled for next week.
20231022 "There is a collective appeal from Arab and Islamic countries asking to restart the special session.
20231022 It is crucial that each country can have a say," he added.
20231022 On Wednesday, the United States vetoed the Brazil-drafted resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
20231022 Russia abstained from voting, which was caused by the fact that the UN Security Council had voted down its amendments to the Brazil-authored draft.
20231022 The UK also abstained, while the other twelve members supported the draft resolution.
