“As for the opinion, reasoning of some media that the terrorist attack is a revenge on Russia for our policy in Syria — this is cynical and cowardly. I have no desire to even begin to characterize such statements,” – said Lavrov at a press conference following talks with foreign minister of Kyrgyzstan Erlan Abdyldayev.

According to the minister, “It is not just an invention of the media, but some leaders, including representatives of the Pentagon under the Obama administration shared similar thoughts with global community,  when they predicted that since we came to Syria to help the Assad government, then we should expect new coffins, which will keep flowing to Russia with the bodies of your soldiers.”

Lavrov believes that such statements are not worthy of politicians. “I hope that in the current situation when terrorism threatens all countries without exception, we can get rid of such double standards and the politicians will show responsibility in this respect”, — concluded Lavrov, expressing the hope that the media can show understanding.
