MOSCOW, March 06. /ITAR-TASS/. The US State Department’s report claiming that the facts cited by President Vladimir Putin during his news conference on Ukraine on March 4 are wrong is striking not so much by its primitive distortion of reality as by its cynicism and uncovered double standards, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday, March 6.
“We will not relegate ourselves to polemics with petty propaganda. We will only say that once again we have to deal with unacceptable arrogance and claims of ultimate truth. The U.S. has no and cannot have moral right to lecture others on how to comply with international rules and respect the sovereignty of other countries. What about the bombings of former Yugoslavia and the invasion of Iraq on falsified pretexts?” the statement said.
“If we turn to more distant historical events, we can find many examples of American military interventions far away from the national borders in the absence of real threat to the security of the United States. The war in Vietnam claimed the lives of two million peaceful citizens, let alone the completely devastated country and the contaminated environment. Under the pretext of protecting their citizens, who had simply happened to be in conflict zones, the U.S. invaded Lebanon in 1958 and the Dominican Republic in 1965, attacked tiny Grenada in 1983, bombed Libya in 1986, and three years later occupied Panama. Nevertheless, they dare accuse Russia of ‘armed aggression’, when it steps in to defend its compatriots who make up the majority of Crimea’s population in order to prevent ultranationalist forces from organizing yet another Maidan bloodbath,” the ministry said.
“Obviously, Washington is unable to adequately perceive events using standards other than the American ones. They are unable to overcome themselves and put up with the fact that they cannot dictate their will and act in their customary role of ‘infallible judge’ who has the final say every time and everywhere. Their nerves are giving in, but this is not the reason to lay their own fault at somebody else’s door,” the statement said.
