MOSCOW, December 27. /TASS/. The Ukrainian officials’ savage wish to ridicule the tragedies that have occurred in Russia over the past days are unexplainable, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Tuesday.
"The savage wish to ridicule the tragic events that have occurred in our country admits of no explanation," Zakharova said. "I’m referring to both Ukrainian officials and public figures."
"We see no unity there where it should be, but for some reason part of society gets consolidated when something tragic happens in Russia. Then we can see both a ‘civic position’, ‘witty humor’ and ‘artistic talent.’ All this looks so weird," Zakharova said.
"As an example of this I can point to the absolutely immoral commentaries by some politicians in Kiev following the murder of Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov in Ankara," she said. "The whole civilized world, except for the terrorists, extremists, and IS militants, has been offering condolences. In Ukraine, though, not a single official has dared publicly voice even some elementary words of sympathy.
