MOSCOW, December 30 (Itar-Tass) —— The armed clashes in Guinea Bissau did not hurt Russian citizens, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
“Judging by reports from Guinea Bissau, servicemen of the Navy clashed with security guards of the Army Staff in the capital city on December 26. Law enforcers detained the majority of the confrontation participants, including a number of high-ranking servicemen,” the ministry said.
“The Russian embassy in Guinea Bissau said that the clashes did not hurt Russians,” the ministry noted.
“Information about the causes of the altercation is contradictory. Observers claim a coup attempt and a conflict between military commanders,” it said.
‘The situation in the capital of Guinea Bissau has normalized by now. Servicemen subordinated to the General Staff chief are in control,” it said.
