To use economic institutions in their political interests, unleashing a trade war against several countries, is unacceptable, should be guided by the decisions taken in the framework of the UN, said the Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin during a meeting with MEP Roland Paksas on Tuesday.

«Today, when you take and use the same dollar to political interests, when they use the banking system for political interests, use of the payment system in the political interests, it is unacceptable. Have not only been questioned, but, as you know, trust this decreases to such basic institutions that took decades to build. This suggests a deep crisis, which has affected many institutions. And we need to restore confidence in these institutions. Therefore, we believe that we should be guided by the decisions of the UN, all the international agreements and decisions adopted in the framework of the UN,» — said Volodin.

He stressed that Russia will continue to implement its policy based on these principles.

«We’re not trying to impose my point of view, we want to hear. And then let’s discuss issues on the basis of common sense. And if someone ignores the voice of one, the other, a third country, where will this lead? We see that (in order) to achieve their political ambitions and desire to maintain a separate economy, a trade war is launched against a large number of States. It is not only Russia — against China, against Iran, against Turkey, in relation to other countries. We can do this list with you and continue to list,» said Chairman of the state Duma.

He explained that including the theme with the supply of Russian energy transferred to the plane of the promotion of the interests of the United States, while the benefits for the citizens of European countries from these solutions in question.

«It is obvious that forcing Russian energy and replacing them with shale gas… that would increase the cost of production, less competitive, and the workload will increase on the citizens of European countries, because they will pay more for this expensive shale gas», — said Volodin, noting that the opinions of EU citizens when making this decision, no one asked.
