Russian diplomat terms EU sanctions as true irony

Senior Russian diplomat Maria Zakharova has termed the EU sanctions against her country a true irony.

EghtesadOnline: The Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, replied to EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell’s earlier remarks by saying that the true irony were the European Union’s anti-Russian sanctions and misappropriation of Russian assets.

The statement came as a response to Borrell’s earlier criticism of the latest presidential election in Russia, which he described as ‘irony’ and claimed that they did not correspond to democratic standards, TASS reported.

"The European Union’s sanctions, <…> [Europe’s] elimination of its own economy and theft of Russian assets - this is a true and very bitter irony. Moreover, the entire architecture of the European commission is an ironic standard of a non-democracy," Zakharova wrote on her Telegram channel. / Mehr
