Russian MFA claimed interference of American and German diplomats and media in Russia’s internal affairs which regard reporting the protests in Moscow. The establishment will appeal to the authorities of the countries, as Russian MFA representative Mariya Zakharova said on air of Russia-1, RIA News reported.
“We will hand all the materials to the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, and not only to the Embassy. I think the U.S. authorities will be surprised that their diplomats interfere with Russian internal affairs, Russian internal policy, considering the fact that the U.S. authorities asked Russia not to interfere with their internal affairs. I think there should be parity,” Zakharova stressed.
She noted that the American Embassy published information about the protest on social media with a call not to interfere with these events. But Zakharova said that “90% of the information called people for joining this event”.
She recalled Paris comments which applied severe ways to disperse rallies in the country.
Zakharova stressed “anti-journalistic” covering of events in Moscow with calls “Muscovites, come out”.
Earlier, Ukraine's foreign ministry has condemned the massive detention of protesters during the rally that took place in Moscow on July 27. The press office of the Ukrainian authority made the respective statement.
The Ministry claimed that the Russian government cannot provide the integrity of democratic expression of will, fearing political competitiveness.
"Barbaric beating of its own citizens, multiple arrests and detentions, the use of artificial and discriminative pre-election filters supposed to let only the favorable candidates run during the election shows Russian government's failure to provide the integrity of democratic expression of will; it shows its fear of the real political competitiveness", reads the statement.
