Russia embassy slams Lapid for lying, disrespecting Palestinian lives
The Russian Embassy in Cairo hints that the Israeli occupation PM was practicing double standards and showing complete disregard and contempt for the lives of Palestinians.
The Russian Embassy in Cairo criticized Israeli occupation Prime Minister Yair Lapid's calls to bomb the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, noting that Lapid had previously adopted allegations related to the Bucha massacre.
On its Twitter account, the Embassy accused Lapid of double standards, comparing Lapid’s attempts last April to accuse Russia of the Bucha massacre and his calls for bombing the Gaza Strip this month.
The Russian Embassy hinted that Lapid was practicing double standards and showing complete disregard and contempt for the lives of Palestinians.
🤔قارِنوا كذب يائير #لبيد بشأن 🇺🇦 في أبريل ومحاولات إلقاء اللوم والمسئولية على 🇷🇺 في وفيات الناس في بوتشا الذين قتلهم بشكل وحشي النازيون 🇺🇦 مع دعواته في أغسطس إلى القصف والضربات على الأراضي 🇵🇸 في قطاع #غزة. أليس ذلك معاييرا مزدوجة وتجاهلا واحتقارا كاملا لحيوات الفلسطينيين⁉️ pic.twitter.com/yrACiAtPQr— RussianEmbassy EGYPT 🇷🇺 (@Rusembegypt) August 9, 2022
It is noteworthy that the Russian presidency had rejected accusations of involvement in the killing of people in the Ukrainian city of Bucha, and called for an investigation into this file "at the highest possible level."
The Russian Defense Ministry had also considered that "All photos and video materials published by the Kiev regime allegedly testifying to some ‘crimes’ committed by Russian soldiers in the town of Bucha, Kiev region, is another provocation."
The Ministry had confirmed that none of the residents of Bucha were harmed during the Russian Armed Forces' control over the city.
On Tuesday, the UN Vasily Nebenzya considered at a session of the UN Security Council that the August 5 airstrikes by the Israeli occupation forces (IOF) provoked an escalation around the Gaza Strip.
The Israeli occupation launched on August 5 an aggression on the Gaza Strip, and Al-Quds Brigades announced that Tayseer Al-Jaabari, a military commander in the northern Gaza Strip, had been martyred.

Consequently, Al-Quds Brigades launched an operation in response to the Israeli occupation's aggression on the Gaza Strip, by launching salvoes of rockets toward the occupied Palestinian territories.
The brutal Israeli aggression left more than 45 martyred, hundreds wounded, and thousands displaced.
Russian-Israeli tensions rising in recent months
In recent months, relations between Russia and the Israeli occupation have been tense.
On July 15, Israeli media reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin had signed a new Russian law to "paralyze Jewish and Israeli organizations," commenting that "the fear is that the new law will create an impossible situation for Jewish and Israeli organizations to operate in Russia."
Israeli media then reported on there being "great tension between Russia and Israel," against the background of reports from Moscow that the Jewish Agency had been suspended, noting that this matter was linked to "Prime Minister Yair Lapid's statement regarding the war in Ukraine," describing the suspension of the agency as "political punishment".
Russian Foreign Ministry summons Israeli occupation Ambassador
Last April, the Israeli newspaper website Haaretz reported that Russia summoned the Israeli occupation Ambassador to Moscow, Alexander Ben Zvi, to the Russian Foreign Ministry.
This came after the Russian Foreign Ministry slammed Lapid for his statements following the suspension of Russia from the UN Human Rights Council over the war in Ukraine.
Lapid had accused the Russian forces of committing "war crimes against a defenseless civilian population. I strongly condemn these war crimes."
