Ukraine demands an explanation from Bosnia regarding the icon presented to Lavrov in Sarajevo
This is reported by Religiyna Pravda while referring to the "Balkan Observer".
Thus, the Ukrainian diplomatic mission reacted to the event that took place during Lavrov's official visit to this Balkan country. The embassy of Ukraine in Bosnia and Herzegovina sent a request about the origin of the icon, which is about 300 years old and which was allegedly found in Luhansk (Ukraine), and asked for detailed information about the origin of this object of the cultural heritage of Ukraine.
The official letter of the Ukrainian side notes that the city of Luhansk is temporarily under the occupation of the Russian Federation. Failure to provide information about the icon, which is part of the Ukrainian cultural heritage, would mean supporting the aggressive policy and military actions of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, which has already led to the death of many thousands of Ukrainian citizens.
During his visit to Republika Srpska, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov received a gift from the former President of Republika Srpska Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serb BiH Presidency Member Milorad Dodik – a 300-year-old gilded icon from Luhansk.
