ULAN BATOR, September 16. /TASS/. Russian State Duma Speaker Sergey Naryshkin has said that it is possible that the United States wanted to destabilize the Middle East deliberately so that refugees should flow to Europe.
"It is clear for everyone that the United States is the ideologist behind the aforementioned interventions," Naryshkin told journalists. "I am not a supporter of conspiracy theories but the question arises by itself - is Europe the final aim of those destabilizing the situation in North Africa and Middle East over the last years with such maniacal persistence?" he added.
"Someone has possibly proposed it, knowing that flows of refugees, those poor and depraved people running from death, would head to EU’s prosperous countries," Naryshkin noted.
The Duma speaker wondered: "Have many European political leaders sincerely talked about the reasons of that crisis, the flow of refugees that is practically overwhelming their countries right now?" "No, old Europe prefers to keep silent, with rare exception," Naryshkin said.
