MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Stressing that it is important that political processes strictly adhere to a country's constitution and national legislation, the source said:
"What is going on in Brazil is an internal matter for the country."
On Wednesday, 61 Brazilian senators voted to remove Rousseff from the presidential post. Former Vice President Michel Temer was subsequently sworn in as the country’s new leader.
"The further development of the situation should not aggravate or split society and turn into a stiff political stand-off," the source added.
In May, the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to start impeachment proceedings against Rousseff after she was accused of concealing the country’s budget deficit ahead of the 2014 election. Rousseff regards the impeachment proceedings as an illegal coup attempt.
