HAMBURG /Germany/, December 9. /TASS/. Moscow considers German media reports on Russia’s attempts to destabilize the situation in that country nonsense, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a news conference on the sidelines of the OSCE Council of Foreign Ministers on Friday.
"As for the issue (of the alleged Russian attempts to destabilize the situation in Germany - TASS), German Chancellor Angela Merkel has described them as nonsense, and I have nothing to add here," Lavrov said. "If we talk about the German media, I heard that the Bild editor-in-chief called me a war criminal and urged Germany’s top diplomat, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, not to communicate with me.
"Let it be on the German media’s conscience. I do not want to offend anyone, but they are second to none in terms of Russophobia," the minister noted. "I don’t know why, as it runs counter to the very kind and friendly feelings that exist between Russians and Germans."
