Russophobia: 21st Century Nazism

Congress Centre, Justice Quarter. Conference hall E12
Sovereign Law in a Changing World
Russophobia has become not only a means of inciting hatred and discrimination against those of our compatriots living abroad, but also the ideological basis for the collective West’s aggressive anti-Russian policy. The US has unleashed a new type of hybrid war aimed at weakening Russia in every way possible, including by undermining its formative civilizational role. In this context, unfriendly countries are using new, extra-legal and illegal leverage against Russia and our compatriots. One of the most obvious forms of Russophobia is the sanctions being used as illegal leverage against Russia, its citizens and organizations. With the help of quasi-judicial mechanisms, unjust decisions are increasingly being taken against Russian citizens in unfriendly countries, with intergovernmental organizations also being used to this end. A Russophobic war has been declared not only on the people of Russia but also on its monuments, with bans on its civilizational heritage sites and its universally recognized works of art and literature. The Foreign Policy Concept approved by the President of the Russian Federation uses the term “Russophobia” for the first time and speaks of the need to push back against the campaign of Russophobia that has been unleashed by unfriendly countries.
