But even those who accept it must find it difficult to rationalize russians other Brazen prevarication. In the same pravda article Russia denied that it helped Egypt violate the Mideast cease fire or that russians Are Manning egyptian missile Sites despite intelligence verification of both. It denies that it is building a nuclear submarine base in Cuba despite Concrete evidence that it is.
