According to the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, the presence of foreign diplomats at the trial in the case of the “patient of the Berlin clinic” is interference in the country’s internal affairs.
“Let me remind you that traditionally diplomats support their citizens in foreign courts. Even if Westerners regard Navalny as “their own,” he is a citizen of the Russian Federation”, – Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page.
The representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry stressed that such interference in the country’s internal affairs is “self-exposure of the unsightly and illegal role of the collective West in attempts to restrain Russia”.
