MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed its protest to German Ambassador to Russia Geza Andreas von Geyr over the accusations made by the German government regarding the situation with Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny.
"A strong protest was declared to the ambassador over the unfounded accusations presented by the federal government of the Federal Republic of Germany against Russia in the context of the illness and hospitalization of Russian citizen Alexei Navalny, and the obvious use of his situation by Berlin as an excuse to discredit our country on the international arena," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a message published on Wednesday.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov earlier said that Berlin was showing a totally unacceptable attitude towards Moscow’s legitimate demands and requests regarding the Navalny situation.
