Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov accused the U.S. of implicitly supporting “terrorist organisations” during an interview with the BBC, conducted in Moscow on Friday. “I think that if they do not present any evidence to the contrary, they either are driven by Nusra [former Al-Qaeda ally al-Nusra Front] or they tacitly support this terrorist organisation”, stated the minister. The Russian diplomat stated that the current U.S. administration “might make history by being the administration which gave rise and support to Nusra”.
