MOSCOW, June 15, /ITAR-TASS/. The fact that the West has failed to condemn the Saturday attack on the Russian Embassy in capital Kiev means that Ukraine has got carte blanche for any activities, to the extent of an open offence against the interests of Russia, lower house parliamentarians say on Sunday.
“The international system does not hold water,” the head of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, Aleksei Pushkov, wrote in his Twitter microblog.
“The UN Security Council has not condemned an attack on the Russian Embassy in Kiev. This means that one is now free to attack embassies,” he said. United Russia Party deputy Vyacheslav Nikonov echoed him, saying that if something of the kind happened to the embassy of any western state in any country, Russia would condemn it.
“The fact that there has been no condemnation by Western countries this time, means that Kiev has got carte blanche for any actions - not only killings, genocide, destruction of peaceful cities and peaceful population, but also open offence against Russia’s interests,” Nikonov said.
“This is outrageous but not surprising, as we have been seeing over the recent time that the West turns a blind eye to all crimes of the Kiev regime,” he said.
The Russian Embassy to Ukraine came under a violent attack on Saturday, with embassy cars overturned, the Russian flag torn down and the premises pelted with eggs, smoke barrels and firecrackers. Ukrainian police did nothing to stop the attack.
