MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Ukrainian officials are no longer hiding their neo-Nazi identity, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said at a plenary session of the Federation Council on Tuesday.
"[Ukraine’s] officials are unabashedly displaying their neo-Nazi character, openly calling for slaughtering Russians worldwide," he said.
The Russian top diplomat stressed that the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson Regions joining Russia is "the implementation of long-standing people’s hopes of reuniting with their historical homeland" and a defensive measure against the actions of the Kiev regime.
"Russia could not but come to rescue the long-suffering population of Donbass and defend the residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson Regions from this inhuman regime," Lavrov noted.
