Russia doesn't dabble in empty threats - diplomat

Russia doesn't send out empty threats and will stand ready to protect its citizens in Ukraine, head of Moscow's delegation at the Vienna talks on military security and arms control Konstantin Gavrilov said on Sunday.

"We will not tolerate when our citizens are attacked. We have been very clear about this," he said during an interview for the Izolenta live Youtube channel.

Over the last weeks, the Western countries have accused Russia on multiple occasions of planning to invade its neighboring country. The Kremlin dismissed the accusations as malicious and unfounded.
