MOSCOW, February 27 /TASS/. The destruction of historic artifacts in the central museum in the Iraqi city of Mosul by terrorists is an act of vandalism, says a Russian Foreign Ministry statement released on Friday.
"Moscow resolutely condemns the barbaric action of Islamic State terrorists. They once again demonstrated to the entire world the true face of those who recognize nothing but violence and are far from true Islam. We support the relevant statement by UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova", the statement said.
A video published by the terrorist group on Thursday featured a group of men attacking the museum’s artifacts, some of them dating from the 7th century BC, with sledgehammers, claiming they were the symbols of idolatry.
UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova has called for convening an emergency meeting of the United Nations Security Council following the assault.
