MOSCOW, August 26. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry has described as “treacherous blasphemy” the remarks of outgoing EU commissioner Martine Reicherts who accused Russia of starting World War II.
“We would like to call attention to an irresponsible statement made by Martine Reicherts, a member of the outgoing European Commission, on August 23,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
“We regard her attempt to blame Russia, the victorious nation, for unleashing WWII in the run-up to the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of victory over fascism to be treacherous blasphemy, which eliminates the distinction between the good and evil and insults the memory of 27 million Soviet people who gave their lives to rid the world of the ‘brown plague’," the Russian Foreign Ministry said, adding the decisions of the Nuremberg Tribunal were still in force.
“Reicherts could have used her short stay in the post of a European commissioner to prove her adherence to the EU-declared basic values rather than using the Russophobic feelings, which are becoming fashionable in the politics of a number of European states, to build her own PR,” the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed.
