Russian Embassy denies scenario of the newspaper "Shekulli", for the assassination by Russian intelligence, to the Albanian opposition leader Lulzim Basha.
Albanian media followed news yesterday that the chairman of the Democratic Party, Lulzim Basha could become the target of an assassination attempt organized abroad, in order to destabilize the situation in Albania.
According this scenario, the National Intelligence Service SHISH, has informed Prime Minister and Minister of Interior and the National Guard, to have stepped up security measures for the opposition leader. "Shekulli" newspaper went even further, accusing Russia that behind this scenario. But the Russian Embassy in Tirana has reacted, calling the news published in the newspaper as a defamation hose does not help relations between the two countries.
In addition the Reaction of Russian Embassy in Tirana
"The Embassy, with all due respect that the newspaper "Shekulli" and its staff, notes with regret that this newspaper in this case has become similar to Western media, which are blowing selflessly myth about the so-called "Russian threat" and they prefer to see the "hand of Moscow" in the events and phenomena of the surprising. In our judgment, this article of Newspaper Shekulli, is a lack of professionalism, is an example of manipulation of public opinion, as well as a lack of respect to readers."
"The fabrications of this kind we see as unacceptable and not conducive to the development of Russia-Albanian relations. We hope a reaction of the newspaper "Shekulli" to make an objective analysis of the situation, and formulate an appropriate response to this comment", noted the Russian Embassy in Tirana..
