The Embassy of the Russian Federation criticized the United States for a grant to search for the

Gran, U.S. Department of state in 250 thousand dollars for the “exposure of the Russian disinformation in the health sector – evidence that the United States of America instead of unite in the face of total disaster – pandemic coronavirus COVID-19, conduct destructive work. This is stated in the statement of the Russian Embassy in the United States.

Information about the grant from the U.S. Department of state published on may 21. Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica said that China and Russia allegedly spreading disinformation with the aim of increasing the influence of the NATO member States and the European Union and their instability in the conditions of a pandemic coronavirus. The Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov in turn said that in a pandemic the United States groundlessly accused Russia and China.

As noted in the statement of the diplomatic mission, such grants reveal the “true sentiments, thoughts and way of thinking of partners from the state Department.” During a pandemic, when Russia and the United States are losing thousands of citizens, all need to unite and not look for an external enemy. “It is supposed to be guilt – totally or partially – for the shortcomings of their own authorities”, — reads the statement.

the Embassy concluded: “Not it would be useful to direct these 250 thousand dollars to help countries in need, the salvation of someone’s lives?”
