Since the beginning of May, the European Union has been discussing the imposition of sanctions against Patriarch Kirill. Hungary opposes this decision. The head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, said that the primate of the Russian Orthodox Church must be blacklisted.
The answer to Borrell’s statement came immediately.
“Let him pray that Patriarch Kirill does not include the European Union in the response (we are talking about a blacklist), although even without this, no one has been submitting a note about the health of the European Union for a long time, ”wrote Maria Zakharova in her Telegram channel.
The representative of the Foreign Ministry also drew a parallel between EU diplomacy and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, which, according to Zakharova, is popular due to its failure, non-functional, but still bringing money to its owners.
Earlier IA SM-News reported that Zakharova criticized the words of the head of the British Foreign Office about the “pernicious influence” of Russia on the Balkans.
