New Delhi, Jan 18: The Rusian embassy here on Monday condemned the deportation of a Russian citizen, Father Seraphim, by the immigration authorities of the Cheni Intertiol Airport. “Ucceptable is the fact that Russian diplomats were denied for seven hours contact with the priest at the airport,” the embassy said in a statement. “He was also denied basic assistance, including food, despite the requests from the embassy and the consulate general of the Russian Federation in Cheni. Such disrespect, shown to a priest from a friendly country, goes against the spirit of mutual affinity and cooperation characteristic of Russian-Indian relationship,” it added. (IANS)
