MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Earlier in the day, the Estonian prime minister was included in Russia's wanted list, according to the latest data from the Russian Interior Ministry.
The European Commission is aware of the reports about Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas facing criminal charges brought by Russia, EU spokeswoman for foreign affairs Nabila Massrali said on Tuesday.
"We have seen the reports, there are still no formal reactions from the persons concerned," Massrali told a daily briefing.
Earlier in the day, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova commented on the decision, saying that "crimes against the memory of those who liberated the world from Nazism and fascism should be answered."
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, commenting on officials from Estonia and Lithuania on Russia's wanted list, said that these people "are responsible for a decision that is a desecration of historical memory" and they "take hostile actions towards both historical memory and our country."
