Russia’s recent missile attacks from strategic bombers and a submarine came as a warning sign for the countries that support terrorists, Pravda newspaper mentioned in an article that accuses Turkey, Qatar and Saudi of supporting the militants who downed the Russian plane over Sinai.
The Russian paper quoted President Vladimir Putin as saying, “In the fight against terrorism, Russia will act in accordance with Article 51 of the UN Charter. The article regulates the right to self-defense for a state.”
After the terrorist attack in the skies over the Sinai Peninsula, Russia can use Article 51 to either bring perpetrators to justice, or take other measures against them (destroy them), it added.
“Qatar is one of the organizers of the terrorist act over the Sinai.”
“In Qatar and Saudi Arabia, there are those who organize and sponsor terrorist attacks – they are headquartered there. There are well-known people there, who control terrorist activities in Syria and Iraq.”
“In my opinion, these people should be very much afraid of Russia, like plague. It is up for the country’s administration to decide how to intimidate those people. Bombing is not necessary at all – there are completely different methods of influence,” Pravda cited CEO of the Institute for the Middle East, Yevgeny Satanovsky.
The paper added, “Russia stepped on the warpath, grabbed a large tomahawk, arrows and went to work. Everything else does not matter.”
