Russia’s ambassador considers offensive Pentagon’s statements

Moscow, Apr 30 (Prensa Latina) The ambassador of Russia in Washington, Anatoli Antonov, stressed that the statements made by the spokesman for the United States Department of Defense, John Kirby, against Russia are offensive and unacceptable.

During a briefing on Friday, Kirby questioned Moscow’s motives for the Russian military operation in Ukraine, saying that Kiev did not threaten anyone.

Kirby said Moscow is filing “outlandish signals about Nazis in Ukraine”, “Outlandish signals that it is about (actions) by the United States against Russia or the West against Russia.” He also called Russian official statements about the operation’s goals “bullshit” and “ridiculous claims.”

“It is surprising that these provocations come from a former military man who knows the meaning of the word well,” Antonov wrote on the Telegram channel of Russia’s embassy in the US.

He stressed that Russian officials have never indulged in such comments against Washington leaders.

He indicated that the US government continues to fill Ukraine with weapons and further emphasized that the primary goal of the Pentagon spokesman and his colleagues is to generate additional revenue for the military-industrial complex and clear its warehouses of obsolete weapons, and that under such a policy, it seems clear that the White House is not interested in a ceasefire in Ukraine.

“John Kirby has lost the dignity of an American officer by lowering himself to the level of a grave insult. He should be ashamed of himself for tarnishing the honor of his uniform,” the Russian ambassador said.
