MOSCOW:  The current leaders of European countries are mostly "dim, lackluster technocrats" who are engaged in pursuing "Euro-Atlantic ideals" instead of resolving national problems, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with Russian media, including TASS.

"In Europe, as I have said many times, all the true leaders are gone. A generation of dim, lackluster technocrats has arrived, who endorse only Euro-Atlantic ideals. Instead of dealing with their national problems, they follow instructions from Washington," he said.

Medvedev explained that there are exceptions among European leaders, such as Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, or Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, "but this only confirms the rule." "And all the rest are people who do not have their own position," the politician stated.

In his opinion, the previous generation of European figures had the inner strength to raise objections when issues were important to their countries. But this does not mean that they took Russia's side or abandoned any European ideals, the politician noted.

"No, but they could object. To the extent that during the period when de Gaulle was the French president, France suspended its participation in the military component of NATO, and considered it the right thing to do. Can you imagine anyone even mentioning that now? They would tear him to pieces and say: 'We will be attacked instantly, Cossacks will be galloping around Paris again, and the world will simply collapse!'" Medvedev surmised.
