As reported by TASS, on Tuesday the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said on the air of Vesti FM radio that the European Union planned to arrange a public flogging of Russia from the visit of the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, to Moscow, but this did not work out.

“I’ll tell you a secret, a secret about our western partners: when they fail to spank, they start hysterics”, – Zakharova noted. 

“The task was to conduct this public flogging, which, it seems to me, they planned very carefully. That is, such a cascade: talk about rallies, talk about journalists, and make Navalny the main topic. Here all in one heap mix, dump and go home with a contented look. Did not work out”.

According to her, the plans of the Western partners were not crowned with success, because the Russian side “offered to discuss real issues: from problems to development prospects that are on the agenda”.

“As a matter of fact, the whole set of topics for discussion was presented. And the most interesting thing is that this discussion took place”, – the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized.
