'McCain believes that God left people his will in America's national documents'

Vladimir Solovyov: "This is Senator's sincere belief that everyone dreams to live like the Americans, but this is not true. This is a traditional fallacy of not very young politicians of young nations, " Russian TV host Vladimir Solovyov said in response to Sen. John McCain's article Russians deserve better than Putin, published on Pravda.Ru. 

According to Solovyov, "the article is very interesting to analyze." "Unless, of course, the senator wrote it himself. If the senator had come live, it would have been clear what he had to say himself and what was prepared for him by speechwriters," the journalist said.

As for the article itself, Solovyov said that it was a set of clichés. "Some of them are fair, some are not fair to Russia. At some places, there is a feeling that the senator believes that God has left people his will in American documents. When he writes about the Lord and says that it is written so in the founding documents of the United States, there is a certain feeling that the senator does not really understand that the Lord did not write the documents relating to the history of the United States," Vladimir Solovyov told Pravda.Ru.

"What he says about the Magnitsky case, is discussed actively in Russia. What he says about how the Russians should live shows quite a traditional, for Americans, perception that they are entitled to decide for other nations, how to live, whom to elect and how they should control their own destiny," he stressed.

"It is sad for me - from what I've read in the senator's op-ed - that his knowledge of ​​Russia is not based on personal experience. I propose him to come to Russia, to see that a lot of what he thinks of Russia as the ultimate truth, is not the case at all," said Vladimir Solovyov.

"He could not only just come, but appear live on state television to express his point of view, no matter how rough it could be. He would see that no one would either censor or moderate him. But probably for McCain, it is not important. It is perhaps important for him to communicate his views to Internet audiences," the TV presenter said. 

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?
