"Realization of the root causes of this crisis that lie in the short-sighted Western policy of the unconditional support of the Arab Spring, export of democracy is gradually gaining the upper hand in Europe," she noted. "We need to take into account and avoid repetition of the mistakes that have actually led to the massive exodus of refugees to Europe."
