Ответ Российской Федерации по Украине

U.S. Mission to the OSCE - Vienna, Austria

U.S. Representative to the Permanent Council of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, Ambassador Daniel Baer

2014-04-03

Большое спасибо, господин председатель. Я в очередной раз услышал оскорбления от моего российского коллеги и не буду тратить время на ответ, а лишь скажу, что считаю обвинения в “нетрадиционных дипломатических сношениях” почетным знаком. Чтобы коллеги за этим столом поняли, против какой темы столь усиленно возражают посол России или его МИД – что я называю “абсурдом”, – это на самом деле была новостная статья, в которой приводилась цитата заявления МИД о том, что Россия “не имеет отношения” к нарушению территориальной целостности и суверенитета Украины. Считаю это абсурдом, и это является продолжением тенденции, заключающейся в следующем: чем большую ложь говорит Россия, тем чаще ее власти повторяют ее. Позвольте мне снова уточнить, эти соображения не направлены в адрес работающей здесь делегации. Это критика Российской Федерации, ее правительства, и я рекомендую всем вам ознакомиться с заявлениями МИД РФ, потому что в последнее время МИД выпустил длинный ряд абсурдных заявлений. Они не соответствуют действительности и являются оскорблением для международного сообщества. Благодарю вас, господин председатель. Read More
