NOVO-OGAREVO, March 22. /TASS/. Head of the Russian presidential administration Sergei Ivanov has called the chief of the Ukrainian security service SBU, Vasily Gritsak, a degenerate for claiming Russia was somehow involved in Tuesday’s terrorist bomb blasts in Brussels.
"I've read comments [of Russian Prime Minister] Dmitry Medvedev. As a philologist, I should praise him for the very well-chosen word. I think the word ‘dimwit’ just correctly characterizes the chief of the Security Service of Ukraine, who suggested that Russia is involved in the terrorist attacks in Brussels and that there is a Russian trace there", he said.
Ivanov added that "if we look for parallels, the first thing that comes to mind, perhaps, is medical psychology. I can only remember one word - ‘degenerate’ from this sphere," Ivanov said.
Earlier on Tuesday, Medvedev slammed the chief of the Ukrainian security service SBU for claiming Russia was somehow involved in Tuesday’s terrorist bomb blasts in Brussels. "The head of the Ukrainian SBU Gritsak, who sees a Russian connection in the Brussels terrorist attacks is a dimwit," Medvedev wrote on his page in Facebook.
Earlier, Medvedev offered deep condolences on behalf of the Russian Cabinet and on his own behalf over the heavy casualties caused by the terrorist attacks in Brussels. "The latest events merely underscore the need for concerted action by the international community in the struggle against terrorism," he said on his page in Facebook. Later, he added his comment regarding Gritsak’s claims.
A series of terrorist attacks hit the Belgian capital on Tuesday morning. According to the latest reports, no less than 34 people were killed. Two explosions occurred at Brussels airport, leaving at least fourteen dead and dozens of others injured. Another terrorist attack was at the Maalbeek metro station, near the European District.
