Russia hits back at US ‘barefaced cynicism and double standards’ over Ukraine — RT News

“The State Department is trying to play on a shamelessly one-sided interpretation of the events,” ministry spokesperson Aleksandr Lukashevich said on Thursday. “Surely, Washington cannot admit that they were nurturing Maidan [protests], encouraging the violent overthrow of the legitimate government, and thus clearing the way for those who are now pretending to be a legitimate power in Kiev.”On Wednesday, one day after the Russian presidents media conference on the events in Ukraine, the US State Department accused him of lying and published a “fact sheet” of Putins 10 “false claims” surrounding the crisis.Moscow said that it will not respond to such “low-level propaganda.”“We will only say, yet again, that we are dealing with unacceptable arrogance and a pretense of having a monopoly on the truth,” Lukashevich said in a statement posted on the Foreign Ministry’s website.The United States has “no moral right” to lecture about observing international laws and respecting the sovereignty of other states, the diplomat added.“What about the bombing of former Yugoslavia or the invasion of Iraq over a fabricated cause?” Lukashevich pointed out.
