“We paid attention to the inadmissible statements by US Ambassador to the OSCE Daniel Baer at the session of the organization’s Standing Council on August 28,” the ministry said.
“Russia is indignant that the American diplomat made scandalous attacks that crossed the line of diplomatic ethnics. His unfounded accusations were not backed up by concrete facts and were full of humiliations against Russia,” the ministry said.
“It is evident that Baer’s undisguised hatred is linked with the Novorossia army’s success. In recent days militias have succeeded in containing Ukrainian troops,” the ministry said.
Russia hopes that the US State Department “will insist the US ambassador change the inappropriate behaviour in the OSCE that should not serve a platform for sweeping and rude statements, but a mechanism for mutually respectful and constructive talks on European security. Otherwise, there is nothing to talk about with him”, the ministry said.
