Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“The lawless murder of Suleimani is a barbaric provocation of the United States. It will lead to nothing but an escalation of tension in the region. The Americans have crossed the red line, and this time the consequences can be most serious. Iran has already promised revenge and a “crushing response.”
But, in my opinion, it’s important for Tehran to avoid further steps that could lead to a sharp deterioration in the situation in the region and act in the legal field. And I would not rule out the need to consider the whole situation in the UN Security Council.
I also express condolences to the entire Iranian people. General Suleymani was his faithful son.”
