A top aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday accused Israel and the United States of training the Islamic State in order to undermine Moscow’s interests in the Middle East.
In an interview with Iranian state television,Alexander Prokhanov said that Mossad agents were training ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq.
“ISIS is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIS will cause you harm,” he told PRESS TV.
“They launched their first terror attack against us just a few days back in Chechnya,” he said.
As the West moves to impose sanctions on Russia for supporting Ukrainian rebels, Moscow supersizes its geopolitical beef – punching back right in the golden arches. Its consumer rights watchdog filed a lawsuit against McDonald’s claiming they found E-coli and antibiotics in their food and that McDonald’s under-stated the calorie-count in their hamburgers and milkshakes. But Russia has a long track record of adopting strict health and safety standards right when the geopolitical tensions are high. AJ+ fully animates the Russian food fight.
