MOSCOW, October 8. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday dismissed as false Latvian media reports alleging that the Russian embassy in Latvia is engaged in the “recruitment” of Latvians to be sent to Donetsk and Luhansk regions as mercenaries.
Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said these publications are another example of using overt forgery for shady ventures.
“On September 14, Latvia’s TV reported in the Panorama program that the Russian embassy was allegedly involved in sending Latvian volunteers to Ukraine,” he said.
“One could only wonder why the state TV channel should transmit utter nonsense, had it not been for an intentional anti-Russian provocation,” the diplomat said. “This incident is another example of using undisguised forgery for malevolent purposes,” he added.
