Russia is not ashamed of its state, unlike the United States. So the general director of MIA “Russia Segodnya” Dmitry Kiselev commented on Twitter’s decision to label the accounts of state media.

In addition, Kiselev drew attention to the fact that the tradition of state media is also strong in Western countries.

“Unlike the United States, we are not ashamed of our state. State media are a European tradition. They are in France and Italy. The British Air Force lives off a government tax. Twitter wants to deprive its readers of the choice? “, – quotes his words” RIA Novosti “on Thursday, August 6.

Earlier in the day, Twitter announced the start of labeling the pages of government officials, as well as state-controlled media.

Thus, the pages of RIA Novosti, TASS, RT, Vesti and a number of other media resources were marked with the label “State edition, Russia”. Also, the marking appeared on the account of Russian leader Vladimir Putin, the country’s government and Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.
