Russia irate over Lukashenko’s ‘Moscow thugs’ comments

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov

From RIA Novosti:  [Belarus] President Alexander Lukashenko‘s remarks suggesting Russia could have been behind an attack on its own embassy in Minsk are "obscene", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday.

A day after Russia strongly condemned the attack, Lukashenko retaliated by saying that "thugs and scoundrels" from Moscow may be to blame.

"I do not want to comment on these obscene remarks," Lavrov said.

He added that there were some leads and suspects would soon be found.

"Let us wait until then," he said.  (photo: RIA Novosti)
