Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov has angered the U.S. administration by derogatory comments on the recent killing of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, Kommersant daily reported on Wednesday.
“The American ambassador to Libya was shot like the lowest dog. He was the main expert on the Libyan ‘revolution.’ He reaped what he sowed,” Zyuganov, leader of the second largest political party in Russia, tweeted on Monday.
U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed along with three colleagues when rioters attacked the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on September 11, after protests about the film The Innocence of Muslims.
Citing an unnamed U.S. State Department source , the daily said Zyuganov’s statement would not go unnoticed but reaction will most likely follow November’s presidential election.
