Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova on Wednesday gave an interview to Russian state-run English language media wherein she continued to advance the Kremlin’s claims that the Ukrainian government or its Western partners likely had something to do with the the Crocus City Hall terror attack.

She underscored that all of this demonstrates that US officials “boxed themselves into a corner” because it allowed independent analysts to “[remind] everyone else what ISIS really is.” By that, she meant the recent history of the US/Gulf alliance in Syria having fueled the rise of ISIS:

“You are behind all those ISIS-type structures; you – the United States, Great Britain – yourselves brought them into being,” she concluded.
