Zakharova: NATO trying to 'demonize' Russia

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova addressed the Ukraine crisis as well as the resurfacing questions concerning the Holodomor famine during a weekly briefing.

Zakharova condemned Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba's appeal to NATO for fast-tracked military support and equipment, while also deeming foreign ministers' joint statement at Bucharest Summit as another attempt to "demonize Russia."

The spokeswoman called the Holodomor Great Famine a "tragedy that affected many people across the Soviet Union," rejecting recent decisions to brand the man-made disaster as a genocide perpetrated by the Soviet regime to stamp out Ukrainian national identity. Western countries also contributed to the crisis by demanding grain payments, she concluded, saying that today "they supply weapons in exchange for grain exports."
