Western countries are trying to divert attention from their internal problems by making anti-Russian statements. This was announced on Sunday, May 2, by a member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs Sergei Tsekov in an interview with RT.
“The problem is that such ministers do not deeply understand the processes that are taking place in the world. They follow the path of self-destruction with such principles. Let them create whatever they want, by and large, it seems to me that this is of little concern to us. They are fighting primarily against themselves, “Tsekov said, commenting on the statement by the Foreign Minister of the United Kingdom, Dominic Raab, about the counteraction of the G7 countries to” Russian propaganda. “
The senator added that the United States and Britain are trying to “keep other countries in check” while retaining a monopoly on the truth. Such actions of Western countries are a great delusion, concluded Tsekov.
On May 2, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, answered Dominik Raab, citing the early Christian ascetic Anthony the Great, who is considered a saint by Catholics and Orthodox Christians. According to her, the last time will come when nine sick people will come to one healthy person and say: you are sick because you are not like us.
Earlier that day, it became known that the countries of the G7 group would consider the issue of creating collective response mechanisms to counter “Russian propaganda and disinformation.” According to Dominik Raab, Russia and China are allegedly trying to sow distrust in Western countries by spreading electoral misinformation or lies about COVID-19 vaccines.
On March 30, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that blocking the accounts of Russian users on Twitter is a manipulation and a manifestation of double standards. He noted that such actions by the administration of the social network are not related to business, but only show that the site is being used as an instrument of anti-Russian propaganda.
