The reason for the unrest in Washington was the Trump administration's unwillingness to admit defeat in the election. It was his supporters' latest attempt to prevent Congress from approving the outcome that legitimized Biden's election. It turned out to be unsuccessful, "Russian military expert, editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine Igor Korotchenko told the Russian bureau of Report, commenting on yesterday's protests in the US capital and the storming of the US Congress building.
"It is extraordinary to witness the events that we observed in Washington yesterday take place in a country that claims to be a model of democracy in the Western world. It seems like this is revolutionary Yerevan or revolutionary Kyiv. But not the capital of the United States. It has very little in common with democracy," said Korotchenko.
According to the expert, it is evident to everyone today that Biden won, despite numerous violations that require repeated elections: "It is useless for Trump to do anything in this situation. He said that on January 20, he would hand over the post. He admitted defeat."
Korotchenko also noted that the START-3 treaty extension would be an excellent first step for the new president. However, according to the expert, it is possible to toughen the anti-Russian policy, accompanied by new sanctions against the Russian financial sector and economy.
