POZDNYAKOVO, November 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has remarked that NATO’s operation in Libya looked very much like its actions in the Balkans ten years ago, the director of the Bertold Beitz Center, political scientist Alexander Rahr, told the media after Friday’s meeting of members of the discussion club Valdai with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
“He (Putin) compared the situation in Libya with the situation in Kosovo of ten years ago. How was it possible to bomb Libya, destroy all military aircraft, just the way it was done in Kosovo, and then finish off and in fact liquidate Gaddafi himself in the most ferocious way?” he said.
“I believe that there is a certain degree of personal insult and distrust towards the policy of the West and the policy of double standards,” Rahr said.
