“Such accusations can be answered in one sentence: “the thief and the cap burns”. This reflects the essence of the situation, – said Dolgov. – We hear a lot of absurd statements that go beyond the diplomatic etiquette, these estimates are absurd and detached from the facts.”

According to him, thus Turkish politicians are trying to divert attention from the systematic gross human rights violations in Turkey.

“They continue massive strikes on the territory of sovereign Syria. This is a gross violation of the principle of the rule of law. Killed civilians, said the diplomat. – Turkey is trying “to translate arrows” on Russia.”
