Ukraine (bbabo.net), - The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, quoted words from the Bible to Pope Francis in response to his accusations against Russian citizens for allegedly their "cruelty" in Ukraine.
The night before, on November 28, the diplomat commented in her telegram channel on the words of the Pope:
“When I talk about Ukraine, I'm talking about a nation that is martyred. If you have people who are martyrs, you have someone who is torturing them. As a rule, the most violent are perhaps those who are from Russia, but not of the Russian tradition, such as Chechens, Buryats, and so on.”
“Some kind of absurdity: until recently, the West believed that the opposite was true, and the Slavs were torturing the Chechens, now the position has changed by 180 degrees. Liberal humanists started playing, ”Zakharova reacted.
She reminded the "Catholic brothers that the Bible says that all people have one Father."
“This is the beginning and end of all conversations that have any xenophobic, racist, nationalist or other misanthropic overtones,” said the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
In addition, she wondered - "what will the Vatican tell us about the martyrdom of the multinational Soviet people?"
“Maybe it makes sense to first talk about Catholic repentance before the Orthodox in the 20th century, and Muslims for many previous ones?” The diplomat added.
As Zakharova emphasized, "we are one family with the Buryats, Chechens and other representatives of our multinational and multi-confessional country."
“And together we will definitely pray for the Holy See, each in his own way, but about the same thing - we wish them not to be tempted. Amen,” she concluded.
As reported by bbabo.net, earlier the Chechen Minister for National Policy, Foreign Relations, Press and Information Akhmed Dudayev advised the Pope in response to statements that Chechens and Buryats are "the most brutal part of the Russian troops in Ukraine" to ask about this from residents of Donbass. He explained the words of the pontiff by saying that he was not satisfied with the position of the Chechens and the head of the republic, Ramzan Kadyrov, regarding LGBT people.
