Almost predictably, the EU seems more worried about assigning blame to the terror victims than to the terrorists:
In a statement in the name of the presidency of the 25-nation EU, Dutch Foreign Minister Bernard Bot said on Friday that all countries should work together to stop such tragedies.
‘But we also would like to know from the Russian authorities how this tragedy could have happened,’ he added.
If this doesn’t redefine “insensitive”, then I don’t know the meaning of the word. It’s satisfying to see that the Russians aren’t going to take this insult:
The Russian Foreign Ministry reacted with outrage on Saturday. ‘Mr. Bot’s elaborations are an absolute contrast with the wide international support and solidarity with Russia in these tragic days,’ the ministry statement said.
‘Inappropriate statements by the Dutch minister look odious … and blasphemous,’ it added. ‘We expect explanations from the Dutch side.’
Amen to that.
