The plans of the authorities of Washington to name the politician Boris Nemtsov homeless shelter in a vacant space near the Russian Embassy are cynicism or stupidity, said the official representative of the foreign Ministry of Russia Maria Zakharova, reports TASS.

“Why did you do that to that man’s name? Either this is stupidity of the political forces in the United States that take such decisions, or it’s a hell of cynicism. Who wanted to do worse? If the memory of Boris Nemtsov, it should be already generally inhumans” she said.

She also suggested that city officials “feel that they want to do somehow hurt Russia,” but showed ignorance of their own realities.

Earlier it was reported that a U.S. Senate Committee approved the renaming of the street outside the Russian Embassy in honor Nemtsov.
