Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
"Russia will not accept such language of sanctions and threats, but in the event of their implementation in practice they will not be left without a response," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in the statement, adding, "At this delicate moment...the EU has taken an extremely unconstructive stance by refusing to cooperate with Russia in areas important for our countries' citizens and business circles."

Oh, and all that "innocent civilian casualty" drone stuff too.
"One might think that Moscow has just become the rapid response arm of the High Commissioner for Human Rights," she told the council. "Russian military action is not a human rights protection mission."
