Change of roll, wish Pompeo and Ukrainian factor: Zakharov – on Munich conference

Official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova in an interview to the program “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on TV channel “Russia 1” has commented on results of the Munich security conference.

According to Zakharova, the world leaders heard calls to stop Russophobic roll, but started anti-Chinese. It’s amazing, said Zakharov, but at the same time sad. The conference put the China threat to the world community because of its policy, showing “reviving colonial approaches.”

“As if the West is now no longer considered shameful to reincarnate the spirit of colonialism, dividing people, nation and country, those that require empathy, support, and those who can wait,” — said Zakharov.

Zakharov believes that China is in a difficult moment of dealing with the epidemic of the coronavirus COVID-19 needs support. Unfortunately, the diplomat said that all delegations, except for the Russian, instead of words of support to the great people preferred the discussion of the so-called phenomenon of Ukraine.

According to Zakharov, in Munich ignored the problem of growing Ukrainian nationalism. Recently, the government of Ukraine made a proposal “the relevant group” on a total ban of the Russian language in the media.

“for some reason, none of those who discussed the Ukraine here, not the question arose regarding the real ideology that is gaining momentum in the territory of that state,” Zakharova said.

Zakharov believes that “good luck” to foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov from Secretary of state Michael Pompeo can explain only employees of the state Department. Pompeo expressed a wish after the meeting with Lavrov on the sidelines of the security conference.
