Russia: ‘Hysterics’ show West hasn't 'read the history books’ — Lavrov

Sergei Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister (Russian): “It’s hard for me to have a substantial conversation on the subject, because all the evidence is being presented through the media. As much as I respect journalists and the media, we can’t seriously discuss these problems, when all we get is allegations. Russia is accused of all mortal sins, but nobody bothers to apply the law that was created... Еще specifically to deal with such cases. But our response is simple. If they choose to speak to us through the media, then we will also answer through the media. But we will address specific issues and handle them properly. And by properly I mean that we will be asking very practical questions. If our Western colleagues are seriously hoping to throw us off balance with their hysterics, they haven’t read history books well. If it’s just temporary insanity and this episode of political madness passes on its own after they get everything out of their system, we will welcome them back to the legal framework, where we can have a serious and professional conversation, without propagandistic declarations.” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated his belief that Western countries were not overly familiar with history when it comes to dealing with Moscow as he spoke during an interview given to RT France, Paris Match and Le Figaro in the Russian capital on Friday. “Russia is accused of all mortal sins, but nobody bothers to apply the law that was created specifically to deal with such cases,” Lavrov said. “If our Western colleagues are seriously hoping to throw us off balance with their hysterics, they haven’t read the history books very well.” He added that Russia would choose mass media as a platform of reciprocal measures were the West to throw accusations at the Kremlin via the same medium. “If it’s just temporary insanity and this episode of political madness passes on its own after they get everything out of their system, we will welcome them back to the legal framework,” he remarked.
