ROME, March 24. /TASS/. Russian Ambassador in Italy Sergey Razov urged the UK to stop fanning “anti-Russian hysteria”, while continuing to wrongly accuse Moscow in the poisoning of ex-GRU Colonel Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, and call it “attack” and “threat to the security of Europe.” In a letter published Saturday in the newspaper Corriere della Sera the diplomat pointed to the absurdity and unacceptability of the British side’s statements.
“Official representatives of London came to the point that openly compare Russia with Nazi Germany and the football world Cup in Russia with the 1936 Olympics (in Germany). To complete this reconstruction of world history in the British interpretation is to find “Russian trace” in the poisoning of Napoleon at Helena,” wrote Times. Poisoning of the animals who were in exile on the island in the Atlantic ocean, according to the decision of the British Cabinet, the former French Emperor never received final confirmation.
The Kremlin has considered offensive the statement of the foreign Ministry of great Britain, who made a comparison between the upcoming soccer world Cup in Russia with the Olympic games of 1936 in the Third Reich. According to the press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov, “it is absolutely disgusting statement,” it is not befitting a Minister of foreign Affairs of the country, any country.
