In a briefing this Thursday, the representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs pointed out that such conduct, in accordance with the status of an international civil servant, is what allows seeking opportunities for dialogue and cooperation.
Zakharova said that this “equidistance should not become indifference”, but should be transformed into the indispensable objectivity to interpret events.
According to Zakharova, the West reacts indifferently to the atrocities perpetrated by Kyiv against civilians in Donbass, referring to the strike on Donetsk with a Tochka-U rocket on March 14th, which killed more than 20 people and wounded 37.
“They dutifully ignored it, kept silent about another of the atrocities of their Ukrainian pupils. As if nothing had happened. As if there had not been a massacre of civilians,” she said.
The Moscow representative called the act a “barbaric terrorist act” and added that her country is deeply outraged by the methods used by the Ukrainian side to conduct hostilities.
She warned that the Moscow authorities will do everything possible to ensure that the Kyiv regime’s crimes against humanity do not go unpunished, and reiterated allegations of Ukrainian nationalists’ refusal to provide civilians with humanitarian corridors out of dangerous areas into Russia.
