The Chairman of the state Duma international Affairs Alexei Pushkov commented on the statement by U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry on his Twitter page. The reason was far-fetched, the severity of the U.S. commitment to the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
«Kerry has threatened Turkey with expulsion from NATO if in the course of the cleansing will be «forgotten rules of democracy.» Absolutely an empty threat. Erdogan knows it,» — said Pushkov.

We will remind, earlier the President of Turkey expressed the intention to execute 8777 people involved in the military coup. As stated by the head of the country, this intention was dictated by the will of the Turkish people, who does not want to hold criminals of this order for your money. Erdogan also expressed his confidence that the conspirators are guilty in the highest degree and deserve appropriate punishment for their crimes against the country.
