1. Russia is simply making false information public to distract the world from their own air strikes and the subsequent collateral damage.
-> Classic NATO rhetoric.
2. He does not share information about Belgian airstrikes or operations with the general public, as this would compromise internal security.
-> Playing the "terrorist security" card.
3. The Russian ambassador did not provide proof during the meeting.
-> At the time of the meeting with the ambassador , the information was not yet released obviously. Conveniently, there is no talk about the current information that has been made available.
4. It is impossible to prove that one has NOT been in a certain location...(quoted literally).
-> This is the most idiotic thing i have seen in a while, as the flight location of the F-16's could easely be made public if he wanted to. But again, drawing the "internal security" card on that...
Some of the opposition has spoken in support of the Minister of Defense, but typical hollow statements about Russia being known for spreading misinformation, rather than actually discussing the provided information...
My guess is this will all go away very quickly, unless some of the opposition or media jumps on it. Which again, is unlikely, since both of them don't like to kick up dust when there are bigger fish to fry internally.
