DISINFO: Borrell's mission was to publicly flog Russia
Borrell’s mission was to perform a public flogging of Russia. This was very carefully planned: first talk about the meetings, then about journalists and then make Navalny the main topic. All this should be put in a pile, mix up and pour over us and then get out of here with a smug expression on his face. Why the West suffered such a grand failure is a big question, but Russia insisted on addressing Real Issues.
[MFA spokesperson Maria Zakharova] disclosed the secret of Western diplomats: When their flogging fails, they get hysterical.
An unfounded claim on Western aggression against Russia.
The High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy/Vice-President of the European Commission (HR/VP), Josep Borrell travelled to Moscow with the intention to open a dialogue on core issues in the relations between the European Union and Russia.
The Kremlin has answered the European Union’s invitation to dialogue with a shameless attempt to deflect attention from its violations of Russia’s international obligations and own laws.
In a statement after the visit, Josep Borrell reiterates his appeal to dialogue with Russia, but notes that the Kremlin refuses an exhange on issues:
"The Russian authorities did not want to seize this opportunity to have a more constructive dialogue with the EU. This is regrettable and we will have to draw the consequences."
