Criticism of the speech of the Deputy permanent representative of Russia to the UN Vladimir Safronkov, who demanded that their colleagues from the UK Matthew Rycroft “to look him in the eye”, is “strange”. The journalists said Deputy foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, reports “RIA Novosti”.
According to him, Western colleagues “from year to year is an exercise in insulting remarks against Russia and its policy.” In the end there is a moment when “we need to send a serious emotional signal,” said Ryabkov. Otherwise, “just don’t get to” withdraw “from a state of such political indoctrination of those who sit for us one table in the hall of the security Council or the OPCW Executive Council”, said the Minister.
Ryabkov said that if the representative of Russia would have continued the conversation in the genre of “your Excellency, with full respect for the reverence to you”, “these Excellencies in the end will finally believe in their superiority over all”. This is due to the fact that they “all like talking to the wall, at least count on the head teshi them, these Excellencies”. “There is still another proverb about eyes and dew,” — said Ryabkov.
He stressed that Safronkov said “exactly what was required in this situation.”

Russia’s permanent representative to the UN demanded that their colleagues from the UK Matthew Rycroft “to look him in the eye” and not to offend Russia on April 12. This statement Safronkov made in response to the words Raycroft that Russia “abuse of veto”, and the government supports the regime in Syria and the use of weapons in the Arab country.
Safronkov said then that the UK is “scared of cooperation between Russia and the United States,” in connection with what is doing “everything that this interaction was undermined”.
