The words of US President Joe Biden that he made the decision on sanctions against Russia not as president, but as supreme commander, are reminiscent of the story of the split personality of Dr. Jekyll from the novel by Robert Stevenson, said Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.
“Actually, it’s bad when two characters settle in the head, dictating different will to a person. It usually has a well-known medical name in psychiatry. <…> Split personality on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde— thing in politics is not safe,»,— wrote Medvedev in his Telegram channel.
According to the deputy chairman of the Security Council, as a result of the decisions of “such a commander in chief” many American and international companies are losing multi-billion dollar capacity in Russia and getting nothing in return. “I’m not talking about food inflation and the price of a gallon of gasoline, which, as the American oilmen told the whole world, is connected not with some mythical threat of Putin, but with the unreasonable policy of Biden and his administration in the field of oil production and refining,” ; he added.
“The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” — 1886 novel by Scottish author Robert Stevenson. The main character is a London doctor Jekyll, who managed to divide a person into two spiritual components: light and dark. He managed to isolate the dark beginning from himself into a separate personality— Hyde, but the body remained one for two and was transformed at the moment of transformation.
Earlier, Biden said that by imposing anti-Russian sanctions, he acted as a commander in chief, and not as a politician who cares about the elections. “I am the President of the United States. This is not about my political survival, but about what is best for the country. No kidding. <…> What happens if NATO's strongest power <…> pass by?»— he wondered.
The President of the United States warned of the threat of chaos in Europe if “Russia continues to move unhindered deep into the continent, China dares to seize Taiwan, and North Korea becomes even more aggressive with its nuclear ambitions.
After that, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, pointed out that the modern economy most often becomes a hostage to politics. “The economy at the present time, especially in world affairs, is becoming a hostage to world politics. She is placed on the altar of politics as a sacrifice, — he said.
