Russia's deputy prime minister says his country's actions in Georgia were comparable to the US reaction to the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Sergei Ivanov told the British Broadcasting Corp. that his country had no choice but to attack Georgia after it tried to retake control of its breakaway region of South Ossetia. He says in an interview with BBC World News conducted Wednesday that the US reaction to Sept. 11 was similar and noted that "any civilized country would act the same way." He also says the suggestion that the Kremlin was acting as if the Soviet Union had never disintegrated was "total rubbish."
