MOSCOW, April 13 /TASS/. A comparative analysis of the US and European reactions to the conflicts in Ukraine and Yemen is uncovering "double standards" in interpreting state coups, Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of the Russian Security Council, said in an interview with the Izvestia daily to be published on Monday.
"I would like to emphasize the clear double standards, which the United States alongside the allegedly ‘progressive’ public traditionally apply to assess similar events," Patrushev said.
He also added that the military campaign in Yemen was signaling crisis of international organizations.
"The military campaign which is currently under way has confirmed that a crisis of international organizations is looming on the horizon. The military interference /into Yemen/ had not been sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council but had started with consent from the United States," Patrushev told Izvestia.
