Russia says N.Korea comedy 'scandalous', slams US

Russia has slammed the United States over a raunchy comedy featuring a fictional plot to kill North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, saying Pyongyang’s anger was understandable. The US has blamed the hacker attack on North Korea, and President Barack Obama has threatened reprisals. Russia, which backs the Stalinist regime, said it was concerned by the latest escalation of tensions between the North and Washington and slammed the irreverent comedy. “The very idea of the film is so aggressive and scandalous that the reaction of the North Korean side… is completely understandable,” foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
