On Friday, Evelyn Farkas, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Russia, appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss recent actions taken against Russia by the Obama administration.
During President Obama’s final press conference he claimed Russia was “a smaller country, a weaker country” than the U.S., and that their economy “doesn’t produce anything that anybody wants to buy,” except oil, gas, and arms.
Farkas, however, strongly disagrees with this claim, saying: “Russia is not small and weak, and the more people say that, the more riled up Vladimir Putin gets. So making that comment is inaccurate.”
Farkas went on to point out: “It’s not going away. It’s got a large land mass. Between the United States and Russia, we have combined 93% of the world’s strategic nuclear weapons. That’s pretty serious.”
