YEREVAN.- The third world war over Iran may start this summer, head of Russian Liberal-Democratic Party Vladimir Zhirinovsky said.

“After Syria is rolled over, Iran will be attacked. Azerbaijan will use it to seize Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenia will oppose, Turkey will support Azerbaijan. It is how Russia may be involved in war this summer,” he said addressing the participants of party’s demonstration.

Russia must protect its southern borders, Zhirinovsky considers. He offers to hold president’s inauguration in April, as the armed conflict can break out in May, Interfax reports.

Presidential elections in Russia are scheduled for March 4.
