MOSCOW, October 3rd. / TASS / Member of the Committee for Defense of the Russian Parliament Andrei Krasov named the appeals of US Senator John McCain to arm Syrian rebels by MANPADS systems as “mental disorders.” “It is obvious that such appeals can articulate man with obvious mental problems”, – said the Russian parliamentarian.
He recalled that the entire world has long been agreed about the impossibility of sales MANPADS systems for uncontrolled armed groups and “violation of the agreements – is a serious cause for proceedings in the International Court.” “McCain apparently does not understand that the supply of MANPADS for Syrian rebels is a double-edged sword. I think in America which many times suffered from terrorism related to aircrafts have a good understanding that if you sold weapons to any terrorist organizations, you can easily get your downed aircrafts, “- he stressed. June 2 the Taliban in Afghanistan was shot down a military transport aircraft of the US Air Force C-130 Hercules. America thirty years ago has actively supplied MANPADS “Stinger” for mujahideen to fight the Soviet aircraft in Afghanistan, reminded the MP.
