MOSCOW, November 26. /TASS/. The US authorities are demonstrating sham care for protesters in foreign countries but do not stop short of using force to crack down on internal protests, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich said on Wednesday, commenting on riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
“The actions of the US authorities are leaving no doubt that they have placed their stake on the use of force against demonstrators protesting against police abuse and a clearly racist crime that was left unpunished. The National Guard units and military hardware have entered the city. Police are indiscriminately using special means, including tear gas, against the protesters,” Lukashevich said, adding that detentions and arrests had become common.
Russia is closely following the events in Ferguson and other US cities and would like to remind the American side of the need to strictly comply with its commitment to guarantee democratic standards and civil liberties, Lukashevich said.
