On the eve of 2016, Comment looks back to select the West’s worst crime of 2015. The year has been gripped by thousands of deaths, millions of displacements and more proxy wars developing across the globe.

Russia has called on all parties involved in the Yemen conflict to try to solve the problems through negotiations and dialogue. On December 17, the warring sides reached an agreement during UN-mediated talks in Switzerland on a full and immediate resumption of humanitarian assistance to conflict-stricken areas in the south of the impoverished country.

This is while the deadly Saudi attacks against Yemenis continue to enjoy the full support of the West, particularly the US.

Many observers believe the interference of Western states in the affairs of other countries as well as their warmongering foreign policies led to the deaths of millions around the world in 2015.
