The Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin accused the West today that it behaves in the Muslim world “like a monkey with a hand grenade,” while the U.S. and many European countries are considering military intervention in Syria.
“The West in the Muslim world behaves like a monkey with a hand grenade,” he wrote on his Twitter account the Rogozin, who is responsible for the defense industry.
Russia, a strong ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned earlier today that a military intervention in Syria would have “catastrophic” consequences for the Middle East and North Africa.
Moreover, the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Monday condemned the “serious impact of previous interventions” of the West in the region, citing as an example the Libyan government “does not control most of the country”, and Iraq, “where dozens people are killed daily in bloody attacks. ”
