Now Moscow.
It is emphasized that “the Moscow Kremlin is the residence of the head of the Russian state, and the special cynicism of the actions of the neo-Nazi Ukrainian authorities lies in the fact that an assassination attempt on the President of Russia was made on the eve of Victory Day and the May 9 Parade, which will be attended by veterans of the Great Patriotic War who shed blood in the fight against Nazism and fascism, including on the territory of Ukraine.
The Russian Foreign Ministry indicates that “the Kiev regime is supported by Western countries, which supply him with weapons, intelligence, train his fighters and point them to targets. The silence of the “collective West” testifies to its indulgence in the terrorist methods of the neo-Nazi and extremist regime.” A strong opinion is expressed that “the world community and international organizations that work without double standards on the basis of international law should condemn the new criminal trick of the Kyiv regime.”
The statement confirms the right of the Russian side to take retaliatory measures against an attempted terrorist act. “We are sure that all the perpetrators will be found. Severe and inevitable punishment awaits them,” concludes the Russian Foreign Ministry.
