MOSCOW, June 22. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has said Western countries cover up for the lies of the Kiev regime.
"What surprises me more is not the lies that we hear from Kiev every hour of every day, but how Kiev’s backers have started to play this game of lies," the minister said in an interview with the Belarusian state television, an excerpt of which was published on the Foreign Ministry’s website on Wednesday. "They are covering up for it whenever they feel like it. Not just these days."
He said the unconstitutional coup was about "the opposition simply spitting in the face of the European Union, which, in the person of France, Germany and Poland, gave its guarantees for the agreement between Yanukovich and the three opposition leaders."
"The next morning, they tore it all up, declared the need to cancel the regional status of the Russian language as a priority, sent armed bandits to the Crimea. That's how it all started," Lavrov said.
