The words of U.S. Senator John McCain about the fact that North America ought to be thankful, Saudi Arabia for the falling oil prices, can be regarded as a small dirty trick, said 1st Deputy head of the faction "United Russia" in the state Duma Franz Klintsevich.
"the message is known Russophobe John McCain made during his visit to Ukraine, is an obvious reaction to the recent meeting of the Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman (son of the current king) and Russian President Vladimir Putin, which has been dubbed the "reset" in Russian-Saudi relations, " said the Klintsevich, quoted by the news Agency.
"It is clear that the Senator has "the guts" to somehow affect these relationships. For this reason he was honored with the hero of well-known anecdote, which, being unable to get a delicious Apple, says to himself: "don't eat it, at least I'll bite!", - Ironically said the Russian Deputy." I would not want to offend a colleague, but in my childhood for such minor mischief had to hold the answer, " he finished. First of Senator John Sidney McCain said North America ought to be thankful, Saudi Arabia for the falling oil prices, because because it was " a blow to Putin." We emphasize, first McCain has said that President Barack Obama should thank Saudi Arabia for what she allowed to fall in oil prices, penalties prior to this had No effect on the Russian economy. International oil prices declined in the past few months, reaching multi-year lows. The fundamental reason for the falling prices is the excess of supply over demand. First, it has become more oil in the U.S. market due to the shale revolution. On the reverse side, began to produce more oil OPEC countries. For example, Libya, Iran and Iraq began to return to the market.
