The Ambassador of Russia Alexander Veshnyakov was urgently summoned to the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Latvia. The wording “on a wide range of issues” actually boiled down to the explanation for the bold interview of a Russian diplomat, the Latvian mass-media, in which he talked about the deliberate demonization of Russia by the West.
“Russian Ambassador Alexander Veshnyakov called into the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Latvia… I will Not go into all the details, but the call is connected with his statements on a wide range of issues, including his emotional interview to local newspaper “Vesti Nedeli”… the Ambassador was invited to talk on the morning of Thursday, may 12,” – quotes words a press-the Secretary of TASS.
“Latvia and some other Western countries there is a deliberate demonization of the Russian Federation in order to weaken Russia. For this… any means necessary, including outright propaganda. The examples are not far to seek,” – said in particular in his interview, Veshnyakov, pointing to the recent film of Bi-bi-si “the Third world. In the command post” (which simulated the situation of a Russian attack on Latvia – approx. ed.) and the film is already made in Latvia “master plan”.
