Vice-speaker: "An attack on the areas where the referendum was held will mean an attack on Russia"
"An attack on the liberated territories after the referendums will mean an attack on Russia with all its consequences."
Qazet.az reports with reference to the Russian mass media that this was said by the vice-speaker of the Russian Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev.
"After the referendum, it will be our duty, not our right, to protect the people here. After that, the opinion of the West will not be taken into account," he said.
