Some foreign diplomats have asked the Russian colleagues to apologize for Russophobia. This was stated by the Russia’s permanent representative to the UN and other international organizations in Geneva Alexei Borodavkin in an interview with the newspaper «Izvestia».

«Among the foreign diplomats there are smarter people who are forced to work Russophobic instructions from capitals, but they do so without much zeal, and on the sidelines shrug and apologize» — he explained.

The Ambassador admitted that there is another category of diplomats, whose Russophobia is a fundamental professional installation: to dissuade them was useless.

He added that diplomats «from time immemorial we have to work in conditions of acute competition and rivalry.»

«In recent years there is an unfavorable tendency, the essence of which is that a positive agenda of the UN some States try to replace confrontational fakes, dishonest propaganda tricks and «set up», he said.

According to him, Russian diplomats are doing all they can to counteract this trend by promoting their initiatives in all key areas of UN activity — the security, arms control, socio-economic development and human rights.

«Well, as far as pressure, then, first, you need to get a «Teflon» coating — to remain calm, and secondly, the diplomat needs to mind his words and to be able to tough «Adbrite» high-handed opponent, so that did not seem enough,» said Borodavkin.
