 "Hysteria at sunset,” “complete failure,” “it’s when you lose your nerve," - Russia responds to Carter’s statement on Russia’s ‘zero contribution’ to fight against ISIS

Russian Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Irina Yarovaya called the statement by U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter on Russia’s "zero" contribution to the fight against the Islamic State terrorists "unprofessional and hysterical.”

As reported by Censor.NET, Yarovaya is confident that Russia's efforts against terrorism were the most efficient.

"'Hysteria at sunset' this is how the statements by the Pentagon could be described. They mean only one thing - a complete failure. It's when you lose your nerve, and the only way out is to blame someone who proved efficient in the fight against terrorism - in this case Russia," Yarovaya said.

According to the lawmaker, the national and global security is not a game and a subject for speculation for Russia, especially when it comes to life of its citizens.

Earlier, on Sunday, Carter said in an interview to NBC that Russia's contribution to the fight against ISIS was "virtually zero", adding that "Russian behavior in Syria certainly made the ending of the Syrian civil war harder."
