Pope's remarks 'un-Christian': Lavrov

On Russian ethnic minorities fighting in Ukraine

01 December, 11:22
(ANSA-AFP) - MOSCOW, DEC 1 - Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday described as "un-Christian" recent comments by Pope Francis that Russian ethnic minorities were among the "cruellest" actors in Moscow's military ranks in Ukraine. "Pope Francis calls for talks but also recently made an incomprehensible statement, completely un-Christian, singling out two Russian nationalities into some category from which atrocities can be expected during hostilities," Lavrov said in televised remarks.
