MOSCOW, April 22. /TASS/. The United States is demanding faster demolition of monuments to World War II monuments in one of the East European countries, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a live interview to three Russian radio stations on Wednesday.
"We do know what type of activities the Americans are engaged in [European] capitals, and what messages they try to deliver," he said, commenting on his earlier statement Washington was using the Ukrainian crisis with the aim of spoiling Russia-EU relations.
"US emissaries have gone as far as to demand that the government of one of the East European countries, liberated by the Red Army, should speed up the demolition of monuments to World War II heroes," said Lavrov. He avoided mentioning the country he was referring to.
