TUNIS, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The US ruined Iraq and it has no right to accuse Russia, which seeks to protect its borders, La Presse de Tunisie paper wrote in an article titled "A Good Question for Washington".
“An important question they should answer is how the country that for no good reason decided to destroy Iraq now dares to accuse Russia, which just seeks to protect its borders and lawful interests as well as Crimea’s Russian-speaking population?” goes the article.
The authors believe “the US had better carry out some self-analysis that would encourage it to be slightly more modest and convince it to temper its claims”.
Russia, the article goes, feels a threat to its essential interests because of sabotage initiated and supported by the West to resist Russian influence in Ukraine. This work, according to the paper, started in 2004 at the time of the Orange Revolution, which has continued for ten years already and toppled “democratically elected” President Viktor Yanukovych.
According to the paper, various media are wrong in comparing the situation in Ukraine to the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia on January 14, 2011. The only feature in common is that the crowd in Tunisia also made the president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, leave the country. However, in Kiev, the paper reports, the crowd “overtly used” special services and Western diplomats to topple the legitimate and democratically elected head of state “not because he was a dictator but because of his close affiliation with Russia which did not match US and the EU’s interests”.
