Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov believes that statements from European and Western politicians about the presence of Russian troops in the Donbass region of Ukraine were unreasoned and unproven.
"I say it every now and then: if you affirm this with such certainty, then show the facts. But no one can or does not want to present any facts, I don't know," Interfax quoted the Russian Foreign Minister as saying.
"They can not present any facts that our partners, primarily Ukrainian and American ones, supposedly have regarding as to what happened to the Malaysian Boeing in July of last year," Sergei Lavrov said.
