PRAGUE, April 27. /TASS/. Russia’s embassy in the Czech Republic has delivered a note to the Czech Foreign Ministry protesting against continuing ungrounded media allegations in respect of Russia and its diplomatic mission.
"We took note of an article in the Czech magazine Respekt, which actually accuses the Russian side of plotting assaults on lives of Prague municipal politicians. The Russian embassy in the Czech Republic categorically denies such flagrant and false allegations," the embassy said in a commentary posted on its Facebook account.
The embassy stressed that these allegations have absolutely no grounds. "It is obvious that this article is part of the information campaign launched in the Czech Republic to discredit Russia and impose a hostile image of it on the Czech people," it said.
"Such primitive methods of provocations and propaganda go against elementary journalism ethics and can evoke nothing but aversion. We expect that a due assessment will be given in the Czech Republic to this infamous publication. The embassy has referred a note to the Czech Foreign Ministry stressing the inadmissibility of ongoing ungrounded verbal attacks on Russia and its diplomatic mission in Prague," it said.
