MOSCOW, January 9. /TASS/. Events in France should bring about a U-turn in the European leaders’ attitudes towards Russia that has never threatened anyone and will not threaten in the future, Viktor Ozerov, the chairman of defence and security committee in the upper house of Russian parliament said on Friday.
Russia has long placed terrorism on the list of major threats to global security along with the proliferation of nuclear weapons and the spread of drugs trafficking, to say nothing of the aftermaths of terrorist acts the Russians themselves have lived through, Ozerov said.
“It’s important for the leaders of European countries and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to realize in this situation the main task today is to counteract to the challenges alarming the whole world rather than to introduce economic or political sanctions against Russia, a country that has never threatened anyone and isn’t going to do it ever,” he said.
“The events unfolding in France should bring about a U-turn in the conscious of many European leaders and in their stance on today’s relations with Russia,” Ozerov said.
Also, it is equally important to people around the world “to stay vigilant and to realize that it (international terrorism) poses danger not only to France,” he said.
“I’m confident the organizations engaging in counteraction to terrorism in Russia understand that it’s important to find allies in this struggle all over the world, to find those who are aware of the significance of consolidated efforts,” Ozerov said.
