Remarks made by Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics, who compared Russia with Germany after World War I and the Third Reich, are blasphemous, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said.

"Such blasphemous comparisons hardly deserve any comments. Let them remain on the conscience of the Latvian foreign minister," the ministry said in a commentary published on its Facebook page.

Rinkevics earlier wrote on Twitter: "The more I follow modern RU [Russia], the more I come to conclusion that she will end up like German Reich after both WWI & WWII & it'll be to late."
