Maria Zakharova noted : "As a matter of fact, it is a real blow for them. It is not a mere loss of commercial profit, it is a blow. Because they have declared themselves global leaders, they teach Europe how to live in all spheres but have nothing to offer in terms of energy policy, the most vital matter for European nations. Well, they can offer something, but on American conditions that are disadvantageous for Europeans," External link

Maria Zakharova said : "I have no idea with whom it has ever worked to push back, constrain and engage at the same time. Generally speaking, all this sounds like a clinical case to me. Such an approach is utterly inappropriate in relations with anyone in his right mind, with any normal country or an alliance of countries. By and large, this kind of approach is utterly out of place in the 21st century. It smacks of medieval obscurantism a little bit: one point on the globe suddenly decides that everybody else should perform the function of vassals. This is a program for vassal states. They must've got it all wrong," External link

According to Belarus' official reports, the decision to land the plane was taken by the pilot in command in accordance with the aviation safety rules because of a terrorist act threat. The actions of the Belarusian aviation authorities were in accordance with the international rules. The fighter aircraft of the Belarusian Air Force was scrambled to control and assist in landing if necessary, especially given the presence of the Belarusian nuclear power plant nearby,” the commentary reads. “We took note of the information about the detention by the Belarusian security services of Roman Protasevich, one of the founders of the Telegram channel NEXTA, who was on board and who was on the list of persons involved in extremist activities. We consider this issue an internal matter of Belarus. There is also the information that a Russian citizen did not return to the plane either.

They did it to arrest ‘anti-Maidan' activist Armen Martirosyan. In a similar scenario, the Ukrainian security services planned to capture the Wagner group member in 2019 through an emergency landing of a plane flying from Minsk to Istanbul in Kiev.

Maria Zakharova said : "We are closely watching the development of the situation around the emergency landing of the Ryanair flight en route from Athens to Vilnius at Minsk airport on 23 May. According to Belarus' official reports, the decision to land the plane was taken by the pilot in command in accordance with the aviation safety rules because of a terrorist act threat. The actions of the Belarusian aviation authorities were in accordance with the international rules. The fighter aircraft of the Belarusian Air Force was scrambled to control and assist in landing if necessary, especially given the presence of the Belarusian nuclear power plant nearby,” the commentary reads. “We took note of the information about the detention by the Belarusian security services of Roman Protasevich, one of the founders of the Telegram channel NEXTA, who was on board and who was on the list of persons involved in extremist activities.

In a similar scenario, the Ukrainian security services planned to capture the Wagner group member in 2019 through an emergency landing of a plane flying from Minsk to Istanbul in Kiev.

The Nord Stream 2 project would deliver Russian gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea when completed, bypassing Ukraine. Navalny, a Kremlin critic and corruption investigator, fell ill on a flight to Moscow last month and was taken to a hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk. He has been in an induced coma in a Berlin hospital since he was flown to Germany for treatment on August 22. German authorities have said that tests showed that he had been poisoned with a chemical nerve agent from the Novichok group. British authorities previously identified the nerve agent, developed during the Soviet era, as the poison used to target former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England in 2018. “We have high expectations from the Russians to bring light into this severe crime,” Maas said. “If they have nothing to do with this attack then it's in their own interest to put the facts on the table”. France also added pressure on Sunday, suggesting the possibility of sanctions if Moscow fails to quickly respond to European demands for answers about Navalny’s poisoning. “It’s a serious situation. It’s serious firstly because it’s the poisoning of another opposition figure. And it’s serious because the substance that was used, Novichok, is banned,” said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking on France Inter radio. “(The Russians) must now tell us the truth so that we can act accordingly ... When we say quickly, it’s quickly, that’s to say a week, now. It’s a traumatizing event for everyone, it’s astonishing for everyone. So the Russians must take the necessary action and I hope they will,” he said. President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman has brushed off allegations that the Kremlin was involved in poisoning Navalny and said last week that Germany hadn’t provided Moscow with any evidence about the politician’s condition. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reiterated Moscow's claim Sunday that Germany hadn't provided any evidence since Russia requested it in late August. “Dear Mr. Maas, if the government of the Federal Republic of Germany is sincere in its statements, then it should itself be interested in preparing a response to the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia as soon as possible," External link

Maria Zakharova noted : "As a matter of fact, it is a real blow for them. It is not a mere loss of commercial profit, it is a blow. Because they have declared themselves global leaders, they teach Europe how to live in all spheres but have nothing to offer in terms of energy policy, the most vital matter for European nations. Well, they can offer something, but on American conditions that are disadvantageous for Europeans," External link

Maria Zakharova said : "I have no idea with whom it has ever worked to push back, constrain and engage at the same time. Generally speaking, all this sounds like a clinical case to me. Such an approach is utterly inappropriate in relations with anyone in his right mind, with any normal country or an alliance of countries. By and large, this kind of approach is utterly out of place in the 21st century. It smacks of medieval obscurantism a little bit: one point on the globe suddenly decides that everybody else should perform the function of vassals. This is a program for vassal states. They must've got it all wrong," External link

Maria Zakharova said : "We are closely watching the development of the situation around the emergency landing of the Ryanair flight en route from Athens to Vilnius at Minsk airport on 23 May. According to Belarus' official reports, the decision to land the plane was taken by the pilot in command in accordance with the aviation safety rules because of a terrorist act threat. The actions of the Belarusian aviation authorities were in accordance with the international rules. The fighter aircraft of the Belarusian Air Force was scrambled to control and assist in landing if necessary, especially given the presence of the Belarusian nuclear power plant nearby,” the commentary reads. “We took note of the information about the detention by the Belarusian security services of Roman Protasevich, one of the founders of the Telegram channel NEXTA, who was on board and who was on the list of persons involved in extremist activities. We consider this issue an internal matter of Belarus. There is also the information that a Russian citizen did not return to the plane either.

Maria Zakharova said ( about Armen Martirosian ) : “Belarusian planes were also subject to forced landings. In 2016, a Belavia plane that departed from Kiev airport and was 50km off the Belarusian airspace was forced to return to the airport of departure at the request of a Ukrainian air traffic controller, who threatened to scramble fighter jets in the event of non-compliance. They did it to arrest ‘anti-Maidan' activist Armen Martirosyan. In a similar scenario, the Ukrainian security services planned to capture the Wagner group member in 2019 through an emergency landing of a plane flying from Minsk to Istanbul in Kiev. Fortunately, this SBU operation failed,” External link

Maria Zakharova pointed out ( about Josep Borrell ) : "It seems that our EU partners have come to be guided by the principle that the ends justify the means, thinking that in certain cases it is possible to betray many other principles, so dear to the EU. This particularly concerns the side effects of sanctions on Minsk. EU High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said during the June 8 discussions of the Belarusian issue that ‘you cannot make an omelet without breaking eggs.’ This is how I would respond to Mr. Josep Borrell: if you want an omelet, break your own eggs," External link

The Nord Stream 2 project would deliver Russian gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea when completed, bypassing Ukraine. Navalny, a Kremlin critic and corruption investigator, fell ill on a flight to Moscow last month and was taken to a hospital in the Siberian city of Omsk. He has been in an induced coma in a Berlin hospital since he was flown to Germany for treatment on August 22. German authorities have said that tests showed that he had been poisoned with a chemical nerve agent from the Novichok group. British authorities previously identified the nerve agent, developed during the Soviet era, as the poison used to target former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in England in 2018. “We have high expectations from the Russians to bring light into this severe crime,” Maas said. “If they have nothing to do with this attack then it's in their own interest to put the facts on the table”. France also added pressure on Sunday, suggesting the possibility of sanctions if Moscow fails to quickly respond to European demands for answers about Navalny’s poisoning. “It’s a serious situation. It’s serious firstly because it’s the poisoning of another opposition figure. And it’s serious because the substance that was used, Novichok, is banned,” said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, speaking on France Inter radio. “(The Russians) must now tell us the truth so that we can act accordingly ... When we say quickly, it’s quickly, that’s to say a week, now. It’s a traumatizing event for everyone, it’s astonishing for everyone. So the Russians must take the necessary action and I hope they will,” he said. President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman has brushed off allegations that the Kremlin was involved in poisoning Navalny and said last week that Germany hadn’t provided Moscow with any evidence about the politician’s condition. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova reiterated Moscow's claim Sunday that Germany hadn't provided any evidence since Russia requested it in late August. “Dear Mr. Maas, if the government of the Federal Republic of Germany is sincere in its statements, then it should itself be interested in preparing a response to the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia as soon as possible," External link
