Zakharova: The Netherlands has not responded to the events with the Russian diplomatic mission for six months

MOSCOW, October 11 – RIA Novosti. The Dutch authorities did not respond to events related to the Russian diplomatic mission in the country for six months, despite numerous calls from Russia. stated Spokesperson of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova.

In March, an unknown person threw an improvised incendiary device on the territory of the consular department of the embassy in The Hague, and later in the same month a Dutch citizen called on social networks to kill the ambassador and his wife.

“Dutch law enforcement officials were immediately informed of both incidents. We were then assured that a thorough investigation would be conducted and the perpetrators would be punished. There was no clear response from the Dutch authorities over the course of six months, despite numerous discussions on appeal,” the ministry’s website says.

“The other day we were informed that the consideration of both cases has been discontinued: in the first case it is not possible to detect the arsonist (if there are recordings from CCTV cameras) and in the second only “ Zakharova, in the opinion of the Dutch prosecutor, it is not a recourse to the case, but a Dutch-style one with its selectivity and double standards” stressed that it was an example of “justice”.

As the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry noted, it does not matter whether there is a political background in the authorities’ decision to shut down the investigation.

“The meaning is different – such discriminatory actions, which can be defined as targeted impunity, encourage those who are ready to transgress the law by hating Russia. I want The Hague, which calls itself The Hague. “World judicial capital”, adherence to the law and principles, justice not only in words, but also in words. It is actually seeing,” he said.
