Russian journalists and bloggers reacted sharply to the riots in Lebanon, which began after the explosion in the port of Beirut.
RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan emphasized in Telegramthat “under the rubble in Beirut there may still be” survivors who “need to be rescued, cleared away the rubble, rebuilt the city”, for this volunteers are needed.
“But no. It’s more fun to go to capture the Foreign Ministry. And to finish off overloaded hospitals with hundreds of new victims, ”she said.
Commenting on her words, the editor-in-chief of “Govorit Moskva” Roman Babayan named actions of participants in the riots “the height of irresponsibility and selfishness.” He suggested that the protesters “seem to be more likely to achieve something amid the catastrophe.”
“And it is surprising that the Lebanese prime minister is looking for a compromise with these people, although now the government should be concerned with other problems,” he said.
RT correspondent Igor Zhdanov on the Telegram channel “Zhdanov Tower” noted that “the most offensive thing is that we have seen hundreds of volunteers and volunteers helping to clear the rubble and clean the streets over these days. Whole classes of schools, students, adults – a huge number of those who are not indifferent. ” He recalled “ordinary people who ride around the city and distribute free water from their cars.”
“And today those who do not care about these volunteers have come out, and all their work has been brought to naught,” he said.
Telegram channel “Guard” writes: “We are waiting for information that the number of victims of the riots provoked by the explosion in Beirut exceeded the number of victims of the explosion in Beirut. For a whole country to receive the Darwin Prize, this has not happened since 2014 ”.
TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak in her Telegram channel “Bloody lady” called the events in Beirut “a cycle of violence.”
War correspondent for “Komsomolskaya Pravda” Alexander Kots said in Telegram: “In general, to what extent do you have to be, excuse me, a cattle to arrange such a gayguy with a transition to chagaha these days in Beirut”. He stressed that there are still people under the ruins in the city.
“Rescuers from all over the world are raking your ruins, doctors are operating on your children, and you, instead of joining a chain to clear the rubble, start street battles,” he said, adding that “I saw this only in Haiti immediately after the earthquake” …
“The whole world is saving, and only the locals are looting. This is what is happening on the streets of Beirut – this is mental looting, ”the message says.
