Small outline by Heine Wind of this RT-article, concerning a speech of Antonov in Colombo, Sri Lanka:
“US responsible for two-thirds of all military conflicts – Russia’s top brass”: http://rt.com/news/209379-us-military-conflicts-antonov/
US interference in the internal affairs of countries around the world has brought neither peace, nor democracy, said Russia’s Deputy Defence Minister Anatoly Antonov. He says the growing military presence of the US in the Asia-Pacific region considerably exceeds the level required to neutralize any existing or potential missile threat. The US is bringing instability to the Asia-Pacific region under the pretext of – specifically – a North Korean nuclear threat.
Another global threat to world are the so-called “colour revolutions”. “Using social and economic conflicts and under the pretext of spreading democracy, Western political spin masters provoke mass disturbances,” he said. “As a result, a lawful government is taken down, chaos and lawlessness spread, people die, and in some cases a regime favourable to the West is brought into power. Of course, terrorists feel comfortable in such conditions.”
Antonov called on the US to “give up double standards in the implementation of counter-terrorist measures” and stop dividing terrorists into good and bad ones. A classic example is the Taliban in Afghanistan, created to combat the Soviet Union, but which ended as the Al-Qaeda terrorist network that [supposedly] bit back hard at the US.
Of course, Antonov mentioned the Ukraine in this context.
