The head of Ingushetia, commenting on the situation in the middle East, said that there touches historical, geopolitical interests. They began to form even before the Soviet Union, were enshrined in the Soviet Union and today – modern Russia.

“In Syria we observed, watched – the enormous patience of our military-political leadership. But eventually we realize that if that wouldn’t do this, then we will constantly wipe their feet”, – said Yevkurov.

Yevkurov has brought a simple analogy: “If a man day and night trains, with one blow fells the bull and everything else, boxer, wrestler, judoka, beefy, handsome, healthy, powerful. And it goes with the girl of his, and it hurt. Weak or hurt, and he can’t stand. Why would he muscles reason for all of this? The same thing: we have power today, we have the Armed forces. We elite. We have a nuclear shield. Why we do it? In order not to attack but to defend their interests”.

About Kosovo

“March on Kosovo – it was part of large-scale events that were held. If then the plan was completed, it would be a political decision – including the landing of airborne on Kosovo field, I think that Europe today would be totally different. And there would be no division of many States of the world. Maybe there would be Arab spring, Arab revolutions And Maidan, most likely, would not be”, – said Yevkurov.

According to the head of Ingushetia, their destructive role was played by America. She managed the process and tried to share all at their discretion and to divide the state. Deliberately created centers and created hotbeds of tension, chaos.

“Intrigue, even in some degree the meanness of American diplomacy misled our diplomacy. In the end, we as the winners of the situation in the Balkans, was on the margins,” – said Yevkurov.

The head of Ingushetia believes, in the spirit of the performers direct the officers, soldiers our army has always shone, and then, during the legendary March on Kosovo, today. But, according to Evkurova, then not enough and pure technical capabilities.

Only permanent jobs will be more than three thousand. This is the complex for breeding and Turkey meat production”.

The head of Ingushetia believes that a positive result gave a comprehensive activities, including the strategy for socio-economic development in the district and there is a subprogram for Ingushetia, where he laid the indicator on decrease of unemployment.

According to Yevkurov, the crisis and sanctions has given additional impetus to the development.

“Oddly enough, maybe due to the fact that in Ingushetia there was never large industrial enterprises that were under sanctions, which depended on the sanctions, on the contrary, the crisis has affected good performance in all areas. Only, the crisis had a negative impact on the supply of equipment in medical and other institutions”, – said Yevkurov.
