“Such hopes are expressed here from time to time: they are claiming that we will be good with America again when the crisis passes. No, we won’t be good with America, and this is already clear. Obama is the most composed American leader but we still have what we have,” Pushkov said at parliament hearings in the State Duma on Monday.

“His successors are either well known to us, like Hillary Clinton who, in my opinion, is the author of the disastrous crisis in Syria and a co-author of the ISIL, or are totally insane people from the Republican Party,” he said.
