It is more important for the West to display an act of aggression towards Russia instead of a support act, stated Maria Zakharova, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, on March 27 on her Facebook page.
At the time when all of Russia is going through a tragedy in the city of Kemerovo, it is more important for the US and the EU countries to announce yet another round of hostile actions, noted Zakharova in her message. The Foreign Ministry Spokesman stressed that such actions “will be difficult to forget“, noting that “today, we realized many things on what European countries’ and the US’ policies are all about.”
On March 26, the United States and 20 European countries decided to expel Russian diplomats. Unsubstantiated accusation of Russia of involvement in the poisoning of Sergey Skripal, a former Russian intelligence officer, was the reason for this action. The US President announced the expulsion of 60 diplomats. Berlin, Warsaw, Paris, and Ottawa decided to expel four Russian diplomats each. Other countries are expelling from one to three members of the diplomatic staff. Kiev supported the initiative by expelling a total of 13 diplomats.
Zakharova’s phrase “today, we realized many things on what European countries’ and the US’ policies are all about” has been repeated by representatives of the Russian elite a number of times in one or another interpretation. The question is: what meaning (if any) these phrases will be filled with when they (Russian elites) say “it will be difficult to forget”? Saying this, do they (Russian elites) once again want to say that “it will be difficult for us, but we will forget it again” or they mean that “we will not forget it and will act accordingly“?
We have to wait and see.
