London blasts bring Iraq war to Britain - Russian expert


MOSCOW, July 7 (RIA Novosti) - The terrorist attacks in London have brought the Iraqi war to the territory of the enemy, a Russian expert said Thursday.

"One can say the Iraqi resistance forces have taken military operations to enemy territory, Britain," said Colonel-General (Rtd.) Leonid Ivashov, the vice president of the Academy of Geopolitical Studies.

He said the terrorist attacks in London were due to Britain's policy of complete support for America's strategic steps, attempts to seize territory by force and change political regimes.

According to Ivashov, on the one hand, Britain is an active supporter of the fight against terrorism, but on the other, provides shelter for various extremist groups.

"Uzbekistan extremist groups, various Islamic terrorist groups as well as Chechen terrorists find shelter in Britain," he said.

"Britain was hit by this type of structure and it was partly a result of British policy," Ivashov said.
