British Foreign Secretary says he is not a 'f****** lunatic'

Britain’s Foreign Secretary David Miliband said in an interview with the BBC Monday that the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, did not swear at him in a telephone conversation, RIA Novosti reports.

Answering a question of whether Lavrov used dirty language in a conversation with him, Miliband said that it was not quite correct.

“It is not true that he called me a “f****** lunatic,” the head of the British Foreign Office said.

British mass media reported Friday that the Russian Foreign Minister used dirty expressions during his telephone conversation with the UK Foreign Secretary when the latter set out his concerns to Lavrov in connection with Russia’s actions in Georgia .

Russia ’s Foreign Ministry rebutted the information Saturday by saying that the distribution of such rumors was aimed to intensify the controversy around Russia ’s policy in the Caucasus .

Sergei Lavrov in his turn said the day before that he only cited one of his European colleagues in the telephone conversation with David Miliband. The colleague, Lavrov said, described Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili as a “f****** lunatic.”

“In order to present Miliband with a different point of view, I had to tell him about a description of Saakashvili that our colleague from a European state gave in a conversation with me," Russia's Itar-Tass news agency quoted Lavrov as saying.

"That description went like this: '******* lunatic'," the news agency quoted Lavrov as telling Russian reporters. "And that was all there was to it,” Lavrov said. “The rest of what was published in The Daily Telegraph I leave to the conscience of anonymous insiders,” the minister added.

It is worthy of note that the insiders informed The Sun journalist Andrew Porter, who subsequently posted the scandalous news on his blog on the website of The Daily Telegraph, that Lavrov was infuriated with David Miliband’s intention to teach him.

According to the blogger, Sergei Lavrov supposedly said the following: “Who the f*** are you to lecture me?” Afterwards, the head of the Russian diplomacy continued to use dirty language to wonder if Miliband was familiar with the history of Russia , the source said.

Russia ’s Foreign Ministry rebutted the information immediately, but referred to it as a leak, which triggered a wild outburst of rumors.
