author: Marina Schumilova

State Duma deputy Anvar Makhmutov has given comments to the international information TV-channel “Al Jazeera” on decision of Russian authorities to cease USAID activity on the territory of Russia.

According to M-r Makhmutov USAID activity not always met the goals on assistance to humanitarian bilateral Russian-US cooperation. Besides, Russian society has become quite mature and doesn’t need external control any more, the deputy believes.
