Massive rally in support of Russia, against NATO held in northern Italy

GENOA /Italy/, October 22. /TASS/. About 200 people came to Piazza De Ferrari in Genoa, Italy’s port city on the Ligurian coast, on Saturday to protest against anti-Russian sanctions, NATO and arms supplies to Kiev.

“The rally is held in support of Italy’s exit from NATO, against sanctions and all the economic and military atrocities to which we are forced to comply; it was organized to denounce Italy’s foreign policy, which we see as absolutely devastating for us,” a member of the association Free Square Genoa, which organized the demonstration, told TASS

He underscored that the initiative was “against any support – political, military and economic – for the Kiev regime, as well as against the fact that Italy’s foreign policy is shaped in Washington and Brussels, but not in Rome.”

According to the activist, the new Italian government will continue to abide by the foreign policy previously carried out by Mario Draghi.

“I am skeptical. I do not think that Rome’s position on Russia may change,” he said.

Italy’s new prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, has repeatedly assured that her government will uphold national interests, but will simultaneously adhere to the EU and NATO line, especially in relations with Moscow.
