“The ‘Democracy Summit’ organized by the United States was selective and virtual. As virtual as its own ‘democracy’,” Rodriguez tweeted.According to the Cuban minister, this event was “a reflection of the moral isolation” of the United States at the international level. “Have the ‘rules’ of demagoguery been established?” Rodriguez asked.Similar assessments of the event were made earlier at Smolenskaya Square. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted that the event under the guise of an assembly of democratic states, which is being held from March 28 to 30 under the leadership of the United States, “is a stark example of Washington’s neocolonial practices.” She called “the height of hypocrisy” the United States’ attempts to present itself as a global example of respect for democratic values.Not as easily as the Americans would like, it all happened at the top itself. It was obviously not possible to get all the invited countries to condemn Russia at the request of the United States. Thus, Armenia, India and Mexico opposed the paragraph of the final declaration concerning Ukraine. The document was signed by them indicating that these countries “support with reservations” the preambular paragraph of the document. Brazil went even further: it flatly refused to sign the declaration.
