Russia calls Latvia's anti-terrorism move'savage xenophobia'

The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman condemns the Baltic nation's decision as nothing but savage xenophobia. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman called Latvia's decision to brand Moscow Moscow a state sponsor of terrorism, calling it absolutely groundless and part of a long-running anti-Russia campaign by Riga.

Maria Zakharova wrote on Telegram shortly after the Thursday declaration by the Latvian parliament, the Saeima, accusing Russia of acts of terrorism in Ukraine.

She insisted that there was no factual basis to this decision, except for savage xenophobia.

Earlier this week, while the latest anti-Russian declaration was still being discussed in Latvia's parliament, Zakharova accused Latvia of plunging itself into a crisis.

The pathological Russophobia of the ruling elites of Latvia has already caused serious economic and social problems in this Baltic country, bringing down the standard of living of its population. She warned that it is only going to get worse in the future.

Zakharova called for Latvian lawmakers to stop being the henchmen of their overseas masters and to actually represent their people, who care about their fate.
