The first deputy chairman of the defense and security committee of Russia’s Federation Council upper parliament house Frans Klintsevich is convinced that this Sunday´s attack in Ankara that claimed, according to JIN News Agency, 31 lives was geared to push Turkey towards military invasion of Syria.
“A terrorist attack is always a grave crime, regardless of the motives of its organizers and plotters,” Frans Klintsevich told the journalists.
He said that the main goal of this terrorist attack in Ankara was to destabilize the situation in the region which is basically pushing Turkey towards a military invasion of Syria.
Klintsevich said that Russia was grieved to hear about the blast in central Ankara and its numerous victims.
“We have experienced first-hand how it feels to lose the near and dear and extend our sincere condolences to the Turkish people,” he said.
He also noted that people are expecting tough response to the terrorist activities from the authorities, adding that he hopes this will be an “adequate response”.
He continued that any rash step may end all efforts of the international community on reconciliation in Syria, because according to him it would be impossible to start it all over again.
