Commenting on the words of German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius that the world would be better without Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov advised the German leadership to take a closer look at their European colleagues, APA reports citing TASS.

Lavrov described Pistorius’ statement as rude.

But I think they should start with the process of examining their colleagues in the European Union around them and actually look at German domestic politics, about what kind of world would be better and who should get rid of it,” Lavrov said at a press conference with a Sudanese colleague, Ali al-Sadiq Ali.
