MOSCOW (Reuters) - Air strikes by the United States on a Syrian air base show Washington is guilty of political double standards, the RIA news agency cited Yury Shvitkin, deputy head of the Russian lower house of parliament's defence committee, as saying on Friday.

He said the United States was using the Islamic State militant group as a tool for its own geopolitical interests.
