Russia's top diplomat also said that the European Union is seeking to be friends with a number of countries to antagonize Russia.
Axar.az informs, Moscow knows that the European Union has written instructions on statements towards Russia, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Monday.
"I think it is secret to no one if I say that we know about written instructions in the European Union as to how each country, including candidates to join it, should speak publicly at any mention of Russia," the diplomat said.
"It is written there that it is an absolute must for all these countries to pronounce as mantra the terms ‘annexation of Crimea’, ‘occupation of Donbass’ and so on," he said. "It seems that this instruction is binding," he added.
Lavrov also said that the European Union is seeking to be friends with a number of countries to antagonize Russia but this is a futile police.
"We have already mentioned the Russian-Serbian humanitarian center which deals with clearing Serbia’s territory of unexploded munitions," he said. "If someone is trying to see any threat to the European Union and NATO in that, I rather see that this position means that the European Union hates to see Russia-Serbia relations developing."
