Lavrov said that Moscow is aware of the existence of such instruction, however, many countries do not comply with it.
“I don’t think reveal a big secret if I say that we know that there are in the European Union written instructions on how every country, including the candidate countries for accession, should publicly speak out at any mention of Russia” — quoted Lavrov TASS.
“It is written that the absolute commitment of all these countries should be pronounced as a mantra, the terms “annexation of Crimea”, “occupation of Donbass”, and so on. It seems that this instruction is obligatory for execution”, — said the Minister.
The Russian foreign Minister added that in his opinion, “blind obedience is not there” because in the EU there are many countries “who understand the absurdity of the current situation”.
