Russia’s Foreign Ministry points to NATO’s Secretary General’s poor eyesight


Russia’s Foreign Ministry suggested NATO’s Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen was “blind” after he wrote he had seen no signs Russia is withdrawing troops from Ukraine’s border, Itar-Tass reported on Thursday.

The conclusion arrived after Rasmussen’s statement appeared on his Twitter microblog, directly contradicting what President Vladimir Putin reiterated earlier in the day, during his meeting with the OSCE acting head and Swiss president Didier Burkhalter. “We have been told that our troops by the Ukrainian border are a concern – we have withdrawn them. They are now not near the border, but at locations where they conduct regular drills at ranges,” said Vladimir Putin.

“We suggest that the blind familiarise themselves with the May 7 statement of the President,” Itar-Tass reported the Russian Foreign Ministry as saying.
