MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. The Latvian authorities’ accusations of "supporting terrorism" against the volunteer movement Baltia that provides assistance to residents of the embattled Donbas region in the south-east of Ukraine are absurd, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
"Measures taken by Latvia’s Security Police against citizens of their country who are not indifferent to the fate of the residents of the embattled south-east of Ukraine who have been left homeless and without means of sustenance — are another deplorable action aimed at intimidating their own population, disagreeing with official Riga’s line for unconditional whitewashing of the crimes committed by Kiev authorities," the spokesman said.
According to Lukashevich, "the absurdity of the accusations of ‘aiding terrorism’ against the volunteers leaves no doubt about the political motives behind the actions of Latvian security services."
