MOSCOW, October 21. /TASS/. NATO’s attempts to put an equation mark between Russia’s steps towards Ukraine and international terrorism are deficient and stay beyond the bounds of the rational, Russian Foreign Ministry said in a comment on Tuesday in the wake of claims made public by NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow.
“The dull and trite craving to put an equation mark between Russia’s actions in Ukraine and the threat to international security emanated by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a terrorist group, is little more than a primitive distortion of reality and it testifies once again to how addicted the US and its allies are to the use of double standards, which serve their geopolitical goals,” the commentary said.
“All of this clearly stands beyond the bounds of the rational,” it indicated.
