MOSCOW, February 18. /TASS/. Current terrorist activity in Turkey indicates that extremists cannot be tamed to serve the interests of any state, the head of the Federation Council’s constitutional legislation and statehood committee, Andrey Klishas, said in the wake of the latest two terrorist attacks against military in Turkey.
"It should be remembered that no one has ever managed to put terrorists at one’s service and get away with it. They are mad dogs, who will sooner or later bite the master. We have been able to see that in what happened to relations between Al Qaeda and the United States and between the Islamic State [terrorist group outlawed in Russia] and Turkey," Klishas said.
He pointed to such a major pre-requisite for the growth of terrorism as the collapse of the Middle East peoples’ statehood, which had emerged within the framework of their own cultural, historical and religious tradition, and the following "attempt to dictate to these peoples some ‘universal’ models of so-called advanced democracies."
Klishas believes that the world is developing the awareness of such actions.
"Such policies have already hit the European countries, which played a major role in destroying the statehood of Libya and Iraq and permitted an inhuman and irresponsible experiment in Syria," he pointed out.
Wednesday evening’s terrorist bomb blast in Turkey’s capital Ankara left 28 dead and 61 injured. Turkish military servicemen were most of the casualties. The tragedy occurred when a bomb-laden vehicle went off at a crossroads near a Turkish army bus carrying officers. Another seven people died on Thursday when a bomb explosion hit a military convoy in southeastern Turkey, Reuters quoted sources as saying.
