"Dangerous games, the consequences of which are not predictable, but definitely negative. And the blame for this is not on the Iranian leadership, " Kosachev said.
In his opinion, the fact that Tehran first pointed out the fault of the United States and Israel in the murder, nothing surprising.
"Whoever was behind this murder, it can certainly be characterized as a terrorist attack aimed at destabilizing the situation in the region, as well as provoking a harsh reaction from Iran," the Russian Senator admitted.

At the same time, it is not known whether the US could have been aware of the operation in advance. The white house and the Central intelligence Agency (CIA) declined to comment to reporters on the matter.
On November 27, it became known that Fakhrizadeh was the victim of a terrorist attack in the village of Absard near the Iranian capital. First, a suicide bombing occurred on the spot, and then the scientist's car was fired at by other attackers. Several people were killed in the attack.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani blamed Israel for the incident.
