Putin likens UN Libya resolution to crusade call

India, China, Russia oppose air strikes on Libya

Moscow: Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin Monday likened the UN Security Council resolution on uprising struck-Libya to a medieval call for a crusade.

"The Security Council resolution is deficient and flawed; it allows everything and is reminiscent of a medieval call for a crusade," Putin said at a ballistic missile factory in the Urals region. "It effectively allows intervention in a sovereign state."

Russia abstained from a UN Security Council resolution adopted Thursday imposing a no-fly zone over Libya and measures to protect civilians from leader Muammar Gaddafi's forces.

Ten of the Security Council's 15 members voted in favour of the resolution, with Russia, China, Germany, India and Brazil abstaining. The resolution was co-sponsored by France, Britain, Lebanon and the United States.

"This U.S. policy is becoming a stable trend," Putin said, recalling the US air strikes on Belgrade under Bill Clinton and Afghanistan and Iraq under the two Bush administrations.

"Now it's Libya's turn - under the pretext of protecting civilians," the premier said. "Where is the logic and conscience? There is neither."

"The ongoing events in Libya confirm that Russia is right to strengthen her defence capabilities," he added.

Western-led military strikes against Libya's strongman Muammar Gaddafi, who has been ruthlessly fighting rebels in the North African country since mid-February, began on Saturday.

Libyan television has reported that at least 50 civilians have been killed and over 150 wounded in the strikes and that many health and education facilities have been destroyed.
