Great Britain cannot blame others until it "answers" for Iraq. This opinion was expressed by the official representative of the Russian foreign ministry, Maria Zakharova, on her Telegram account—and commenting on the statement by British foreign secretary Elizabeth Truss on Russia's accountability in the current refugee crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border, Gazeta writes.
"Britain bears a clear historical responsibility for everything that is happening in the region from now on: the Iraqi casualties, the collapse of the Iraqi state, the endless flow of refugees, the creation of the Islamic State, the humanitarian catastrophes in that area. And unless London answers for its crimes, its official representatives have no right to accuse anyone," Zakharova noted.
She added that 45,000 British troops had helped the United States occupy Iraq, kill locals, and plunder the country's wealth.
