“The UN Security Council did not authorize Washington to use force. But American troops invaded Iraq anyway. Half a million civilians became victims, the president was executed, the country was gone,” added the Chairman of the State Duma.
Later, Powell admitted that the vial case was just a hoax, but Washington had not been held to account, as emphasized Vyacheslav Volodin.
“All the policies of the United States of America and the collective West are based on lies. The same applied to the ‘non-expansion’ of NATO eastwards. The Minsk agreements also turned out to be a deception, as Merkel and Hollande acted just as Powell did,” stressed the Chairman of the State Duma.
Vyacheslav Volodin emphasized that the UN should investigate Washington's crimes against humanity. “And those politicians who made such decisions should be punished for the millions of victims, refugees, broken destinies, destroyed states,” he concluded.
