Russia v. the Korea Times

I’m sure you might have heard of the horrific subway bombings which occurred in Moscow not too long ago.  The Korea Times published a couple of cartoons which really offended the Russians.  Here is one of them.  The most offensive one was removed.  The Ambassadaor of the Russian Federation to Seoul, Konstantin V. Vnukov has registered his displeasure and basically has accused The Korea Times of being in league with the terrorists.  You can see Ambassador Vnukov’s highly undiplomatic comments here.

However, as undiplomatic as his remarks might be, they are nothing compared to the comments printed in Russia’s leading newspaper Pravda.  You can read them here.
