“Such statements are not only offensive, not only untrue, they are disinformational,” RIA Novosti quoted Zakharova as saying.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman said that “this confrontational rhetoric, it must go away, it must remain in the past, and this is not only a question of interaction between Brussels and Moscow, the European Union and Russia, this confrontational rhetoric strikes a blow much more destructive than they could even imagine. , according to the Western reputation, as a kind of leader, as a kind of producer of meanings, because everyone understands perfectly well. ”
Earlier Borrell called Russia a “dangerous neighbor”, but called for keeping open channels of communication to resolve issues of mutual interest.
