Putin accuses european countries of double standard against the TRNC

Russian President Vladimir Putin yesterday accused European countries who support independence for Kosovo of having double standards against the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC).. "I don't want to say anything that would offend anyone, but for 40 years the TRNC has practically had independence," he told a press conference. "Why aren't you recognizing that?"
