Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticised Europe and the United States for not taking back their citizens who were captured while fighting for Islamic State. He made the remarks during a press conference with his Bangladeshi counterpart Abulkalam Abdul Momen in Moscow on Monday.

“Our western colleagues from Europe first of all and from other parts of the world do not want to take international terrorists and members of militias that were captured by Americans and Kurds at the east brink of Euphrates,” Lavrov said.

“Americans threaten that they will free them, and this would be an awful crime, I think. The Europeans refuse to take these criminals although they are citizens of European states. The last I heard is that they are trying to persuade the Iraqi authorities to take them. It is not funny,” he added.

His Bangladeshi counterpart also noted that “terrorists have no religion, terrorists have no country.”

“They are a menace to civilization and humanity. So we think that any terrorist whatever they may be, our prime minister has appeal to the global world that we should all work together to wipe out terrorism across from the globe,” he added.

United States President Donald Trump recently called on his European allies to take back over 800 ISIS fighters that have been captured in Syria and put them on trial. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the return of potential terrorists back into domestic society is “a challenge for all of us.”

The good point is that Iraqi authorities will simply hang them, case closed. They’ve already sentenced to death some of the ISIS prisoners in SDF custody… Question to Lavrov : what is Russia doing for ISIS Chechen members? Just like to Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev, the former acting president of the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria? (GRU placed a bomb under Yandarbiyev’s car… In Qatar). Maybe GRU simply places a bullet in their neck, chain his feet to a cinder block and throw the carcass in lake Assad or the sea? Well, maybe they don’t shoot a bullet in the neck? Then if… Read more »

They should be tried under Syrian or Iraqi law and executed for committing serious crimes in those countries. It should be that simple, but politics dont allow it. Even if foreign citizens commit a crime somewhere they are liable to be tried under that countries laws (unless youre an American in a military base under extraterritoriality). That same governing principle is also why it is worth it for foreigners to commit crimes in western countries because being tried under those laws is a joke (theyre further helped by judges and lawyers for sentencing, so its even less bad than being… Read more »
