German mass media have brought new accusations against Ukrainian Interior Minister Yuriy Lutsenko. According to the German weekly Focus, the Ukrainian interior minister shouted racist insults at German police during a drunken incident at Frankfurt airport last week, the Deutsche Welle reported, according to Interfax-Ukraine.

During the incident the minister called the police officers "Nazi swine," among other insults, when the prevented him from boarding a flight to Seoul on May 4, Focus reported citing an official police report of the incident.

The German Bild tabloid reported earlier that the police had detained Lutsenko and members of the Interior Ministry's delegation in a state of acute alcoholic intoxication at Frankfurt airport on May 4. Lutsenko and his 19-year-old son started a scuffle after the captain of the flight to Seoul refused to take the allegedly drunken Ukrainians aboard. Lutsenko and his son reportedly hurled both loud words and a cell phone at a stewardess and airport officers, and then resisted the police, which came to calm them down.

The Ukrainian Interior Ministry, in turn, dismissed reports in foreign media that the Ukrainian officials had behaved improperly at the airport.
Yuriy Lutsenko promissed to report on this accident on Tuesday in the VRU.
