Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia claimed that the Ukrainian mass media hold the information campaign against Inal Ardzinba, the Head of Department of Kremlin who is well known in Ukraine as the handler of the separatist and terrorist groupings as Gordon reported.
Earlier Ardzinba was appointed to the position of the state counselor of Russia by the presidential decree. Also, Zakharova noted that she does not expect that the attitude of the Ukrainian mass media will change as 'Ardzinba is the beloved hero of the modern Ukrainian epic'.
'Inal Ardzinba, the Head of the Kremlin Department for Social and Economic Cooperation with CIS-states, Abkhazia and South Ossetia was assigned a class rank of the full state counselor in the beginning of December by the proper decree of the President of Russia. It raised the inadequate response of the Ukrainian mass media. We were overwhelmed with the questions, particularly from the Russian mass media to comment this', she said.
Zakharova noted that the Ukrainian mass media present the promotion of Ardzinba as the result of his terrorist activity in Ukraine.
'It is nonsense. There is some non-indifferent attitude of the Ukrainian mass media to Inal Ardzinba. Such maniac desire to follow the life and career of the Russian officials comes from their own personnel crisis or the desire to find some external enemies. I can only recommend in this case to the Ukrainian mass media to deal with the focusing on the inner-political, economic and social issues of Ukraine and do not search for the external enemies'.
Zakharova also recommended the Ukrainian mass media to analyze the fulfilling of the Minsk Agreement more carefully.
