Member of the Federation Council Alexei Pushkov appreciated the decision of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi not to visit the island of Taiwan. The senator considered the refusal of the visit a moral victory for Beijing. “As a result, Pelosi did not fly to Taiwan – out of harm’s way,” the Russian senator said. According to him, Washington changed the plan because it was not ready for an armed clash with China. At the same time, Pushkov accused American politicians of being prone to provocations.
