Kremlin worried over death intimidations to previous Austrian FM


(MENAFN) The Kremlin states the death intimidations made to previous Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl have to be as “a wake-up call.”

“As far as we are aware, she has indeed been subjected to persecution, ‘canceling’, and so on,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said to media on Wednesday.

“Completely unbearable conditions have been created for her,” Peskov went on.

“It’s a wake-up call for a society that is capable of such [mistreatment].”

Kneissl, who was a foreign minister between 2017 and 2019, informed the Washington Post on Tuesday that she had to leave Austria because of death intimidations. In May, she resigned from the board of directors of Russian state oil massive Rosneft.

Many nations, counting EU members, forced full restrictions against Russia when it sent forces into Ukraine in late February.
