On 5 December a strike against hospital in Aleppo killed a Russian military woman doctor, two more medical workers are wounded. As Igor Konashenkov, official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defence, claimed, 'blood of the Russian military doctors in Aleppo is on hands of terrorists' patrons from the US, Great Britain and France'.
Colonel General Leonid Ivashov, President of the International Centre of Geopolitical Analysis, told Pravda.Ru how the Defence Ministry will respond.
Igor Konashenkov has correctly indicated address of those who created such powerful terror organizations as ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra. Namely the West has created them. They invaded the Middle East, stirred it up, destroyed countries which were a pillar in this region, executed governors and let such terror structures thrive.
Our wonderful doctor has died, who came there not to conquer territory along with the troops, but to render humanitarian aid. What will Russia undertake? The military will handle it, carry out strikes in revenge and annihilate those who conducted this action. We should show the face of those who created the IS and face of those grown-up children, those beasts. We should defeat this evil on the battlefield.
The face of the West is well-known all over the world. We should show our face: kind, humane, just, and cruel at the same time towards those who destabilize peace, annihilate states and create alike structures.
