Maria Zakharova pointed out that, including the United Nations General Assembly, the statements of the officials were "absurd".
"It's hysteria, it's intimidation, it's all together. They will make more and more absurd claims," she said.
As she pointed out, Russia tried to prevent the current development of events in Ukraine, but the West chose not to pay attention to that.
"All this is presented as a long-awaited and desired action of Russia. However, it is a forced situation. This happened after all possibilities of negotiations, compromise, explanations were exhausted. It is necessary to understand that," Zakharova emphasized.
She assessed that "it is unbelievable that the West is now declining to such a level that it does not want to take on any responsibility for the events in Ukraine."
She also said that "Washington has taken a hypocritical position on the issue of the work of Russia's diplomatic mission in the United States by expelling Russian diplomats." Zakharova said today that, as she stated, telephone terrorists from the United States, Germany, Poland and Ukraine are trying to block the work of Russian diplomats abroad.
"Telephone terrorists use telephone lines, emergency telephones and contact information," Zakharova told the Soloviev Live YouTube channel, TASS reports.
As she said, "they call mostly from Ukraine, Poland, the United States and Germany. These are the leaders, but there are other countries. They simply block the work of Russian diplomats abroad."
