PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, February 7 – RIA Novosti. Western politicians, to whom Moscow had previously sent videos showing how police in Russia and in the West act on uncoordinated actions, silently responded to the transferred materials because they had no arguments, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.
In Russian cities, on January 23 and 31, uncoordinated actions took place, which turned into clashes with security officials, arrests of violators and initiation of criminal cases, including the threat of mass infection of COVID-19. The Russian Foreign Ministry, in response to the comments of foreign politicians on the situation in Russia and around Alexei Navalny, advised them to respect international law and deal with the problems of their countries, and the head of the department, Sergei Lavrov, noted that the statements of Western politicians on this topic are “like a blueprint.” Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin did not intend to listen to statements from abroad about Navalny.
Lavrov also said earlier that during the talks in Moscow with Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde he gave her video materials about “how illegal actions are being carried out and suppressed in the West and how our police are reacting to the atrocities of the demonstrators during the recent events.” In addition, the same video materials were sent to Brussels on the eve of the visit of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, to Russia.
“The so-called disproportionate, as they like to say, the use of force, we gave them a look – Ann Linde during the negotiations, and Borrel – in advance, this is an important point, we sent all these videos to watch in advance. The video consists of two parts – the first part is that how the Western police behave “proportionally”, including in the EU countries, and (second part) – how the participants of illegal protest actions in our country provoke the police. We received nothing but silence in response. Just silence, no arguments, and they can not be, “- said Zakharova on the air of the TV channel” Russia 1 “. Capitol Capitol in Washington
