Russia To End “Cooperation Against Terror”

From those lovers of dictatorial thugs at Reuters:

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mikhail Kamynin speaks in the Russian Foreign Ministry in Moscow, Thursday, July 19, 2007.

Russian expels 4 British diplomats

By STEVE GUTTERMAN, Associated Press Writer

MOSCOW – Russia said Thursday it will expel four British diplomats and suspend counterterrorism cooperation with London, the latest move in a mounting confrontation over the radiation poisoning death of former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko…

Kamynin described Russia’s response as “targeted, balanced and the minimum necessary.” He contended that Russia was forced to respond, saying Britain had made a “conscious choice of worsening relations with our country.” …

Kamynin also said Russia would stop issuing visas to British officials and seeking British visas for Russian officials until London provides more information on the restrictions it has imposed.

“Until the new procedure is explained, Russian officials will not request British visas. And analogous requests by British officials will not be considered,” he said.

He also said Moscow would suspend cooperation against terror.

“To our regret, cooperation between Russia and Britain on issues of fighting terrorism becomes impossible,” Kamynin said

How can Russia suspend its counter-terrorism efforts? Wouldn’t they have to start first?

Or do they consider selling military supplies to the terrorists a form of counter-terrorism?

Is their equipment that bad?

What wonderful allies they are.
