HANOI, October 4. /TASS/. Foreign politicians deliberately keep silent about the neo-Nazi atrocities and the extermination of the civilian population of Donbass, Russia’s Prosecutor-General Igor Krasnov said in Hanoi on Tuesday.
"Some foreign statesmen deliberately keep silent about the neo-Nazi rampage in Ukraine and the extermination of the civilian population of Donbass. Let me stress that it was these atrocities committed by the Kiev regime that left our country with no choice other than to conduct a special military operation to protect innocent civilians," he said.
Krasnov stressed that many foreign counterparts "groundlessly refuse to cooperate with the Russian side, including in the fight against crime."
"This is a dead-end approach. It is unconstructive and allows criminals to escape from punishment by hiding on the territories of other states," he said.
On Tuesday, Krasnov, during a working visit to Hanoi, met with Vietnam’s Prosecutor-General Le Minh Tri. He said that the events in Ukraine were increasingly being used as a pretext for putting pressure on Russia and limiting the powers of Russian representatives in international bodies and organizations.
