The mobyesque headline is because it is written by Steve Rosenburg, an anti-Russian BBC propagandist of the highest order. If one reads the article, one sees Russia never actually said that. BBC swerving and lying again.

If one reads the quotes in the article from the Russian side:

Quote
Speaking at the conference, the Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Valery Gerasimov, said the rise of terrorism was partly the result of "attempts to transfer the values of Western democracy to countries with their own mentality, spiritual values and traditions... this had exploded North Africa and the Middle East".

Quote
When I ask Veronika Krasheninnikova, a member of the Russian Public Chamber, who she views as the greatest threat in the world today, she points to Washington.

Quote
"It takes two to tango, but it takes one to start a war," she tells me. "It takes one country to bomb other countries such as Libya."

Not much to argue with there.
